Stefanie Japel learned to knit from her grandma when she was 8 years old. She grew up wearing her sweaters and borrowing the ones she made for other people. Most of these sweaters are raglans, knit in the round from the top. Stefanie continues this sweater-making tradition.

Her work has appeared in books and publications including Big Girl Knits, Stitch N Bitch Nation, KnitGrrl, Knit Wit, Not Another Teen Knitting Book, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.1 and Vogue Knitting. She has designed patterns for Stitch Diva Studios, Southwest Trading Co., JCA Reynolds, Artful Yarns, Tilli Tomas and Mission Falls.
Stefanie's teaching is marked by her infectious enthusiasm and keen eye for detail. Visit her blog for more information: www.stefaniejapel.com.
These cloths are great gifts, and can be presented as
face cloths, dish cloths, little hotpads, trivets, cloths to

Knit them from white yarn, dyed yarn, or dye them after
knitting. Attach one of our UPcycled Gift hang tags to
let the recipient know how much you care!
This is a gaugeless project. No
matter what size of yarn you have

finished project, the size of
needles that you choose, and the
diameter of your yarn.
