In issue 81 Rachel Atkinson rediscovers the joys of raised stitches to create highly textured fabricsâ€¦ perfect for her new washcloth design!
"I adore making washcloths; they are an instant gratification project and not only do they have a finished purpose, they are also the perfect way to try out new stitches. There is a stack of fresh cloths tucked away in my cupboard which I gift throughout the year with a bar of soap, or use them when wrapping a chocolate gift."
