Pantry Staple Washcloths


The two texture stitch patterns in these cute and practical wash cloths are called Nut Stitch and Rice Stitch, hence the “Pantry Staple” name. Both are knit/purl patterns, and while the Rice Stitch is a great beginner texture pattern, the Nut Stitch is a great pattern for those who are ready to tackle a slightly more complex stitch. Both create a textured bumpy side, and a smooth side – the perfect thing for an exfoliating face cloth for your beauty care routine! Pair the cloths with a bar of locally handmade soap and you have the perfect gift to give!
