Knitted Cross Washcloth

12 Mar
Happy March Everyone!
I hope you are all enjoying the patterns that I have designed, and am now sharing with you?!
I wanted to share something for Easter, and since Easter is April 8 this year, I thought I better post this pattern now, so you will have time to make some for the special day, that some even call Resurrection Day.  Our family calls it both , but we do emphasize the most important part, which is Resurrection Day, but we do not see the harm in the fun stuff. 🙂
In any case, this month I am sharing my first ever, and so far only, knitting pattern.  It is a cross inside a washcloth.  I really believe you need to use a solid color for this so the cross can be seen easily.  If you are blind, or low vision, don’t worry you can feel the cross easily. 😉
If you give this a try, please let me know how you like it.
If you are one of my crocheters that do not, or can not knit, and would like a crochet pattern for this month, please let me know, and I’ll see if I can get one posted for you.  It will not be this design, as I only designed this in the knitting pattern, but I think I can find a crochet pattern or 2 that I created, to post for ya. 😉
Be blessed and stay creative!
