Carrying on in my 100% cotton obsession – I have decided to indulge in a luxurious linen stitch spa cloth. This Spa Cloth features an easy yet interesting linen stitch, 100% cotton yarn, and is perfect for spring knitting, not to mention gift giving!
Now don’t be concerned by the term linen stitch, after all, it’s all just knits and purls. In the linen stitch pattern, they just happen to be arranged in a certain way to give that unique texture, and a richer fabric.

Relatively quick to finish, yet challenging enough to enjoy, this is the pattern is going to be your go-to pattern for the season.
