Pattern Description:

As I write and publish this, it's summer and summer is a terrific time to work on small, light projects ... and to think about making Christmas gifts. I present to you my "Spa Cloth and Soap Bag" ensemble. Along with instructions for making the two knitted spa cloths, the Tunisian Crochet Simple Stitch spa cloth and knitted soap bag, I've included detailed photo tutorials on:

1. How to make an I-Cord
2. How to make a cord with a Viking era Lucet
3. How to do the Tunisian Crochet Simple Stitch

I've also explained how to turn a wash cloth into a gift basket!

Once you've made the spa cloths and gift basket, I suggest you add some decorative soap, perhaps "sample" size shampoo, conditioner and skin cream, wrap it all up in gift basket cellophane, top it off with a gorgeous bow ... and present it as a gift to a woman you really want to spoil!

I'm always available to help my buyers, so if you have any questions as you work up my designs, please contact me at the Email address listed on the patterns.

Thank you!
