Hot Cross Spa Cloth

My girls and I love handmade cotton cloths and with 4 of us we can never have too many! For this pattern I wanted something with lots of texture. Cloths are a perfect project to try out a fun new stitch pattern.

I have lots of cotton in my stash and spa cloths are the perfect project to work on using some of it up. They make great gifts for teacher appreciation, housewarmings and special occasions.

About the cotton

The blue spa cloth is made in Bernat Handicrafter sky. I love the colour but I found it a bit more rough to work with using this stitch pattern. I tried Premier Yarns Home Cotton next. It’s a blend of polyester and cotton that’s so soft and glided across my hook with ease. It ended up being the winner for this pattern!

You can make 1 cloth from an 80 gram ball. I used about 60 grams or 105 yards. This makes a 10 x 10″ spa cloth. You can purchase this yarn in a variety of colours to suit your home decor. Love the basket? Check out the free pattern HERE.
