Ribbly Spa Set

(6) Name: 'Knitting : Ribbly Spa Set
Ribbly Spa Set

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitted Cast-On, Knit, Knit in the round, Purl, YO (Yarn Over), K2Tog (Knit 2 stitches together as one to decrease by 1 stitch), Bind-Off

Pattern Description:

Why Ribbly? Well, I just like the looks of corrugated anything, but the garter ridges look very manly. (They like to spoil themselves, too, you know.) This set would look great done in a camo colorway or darker colors - faded denim, maybe?

The pattern consists of instructions to make a Washcloth, Facial Scrubbie, Bath Scrubbie, and Bath Puffie. 4 ounces of cotton will make all 4 pieces with plenty left over for multiples of the Facial Scrubbies. (I made two of them and could probably have gotten a couple more from the leftover yarn...).

These are terrific sellers at Farmer's Markets, perfect to include in a gift basket for someone special, but really GREAT to spoil yourself.

Add some bubbles, a wonderfully scented soap (I prefer handmade soap or bath salts from my favorite soap maker on Facebook - let me know if you need the link - they're just yummy!), maybe a candle or two and a glass of wine and you're ready to treat yourself like royalty.
