Race Day Spa Cloth

The Race Day Spa Cloth is here! It’s one of the new patterns in the Folk Tales Spa Cloth Collection , a collection of fun-to-knit and lovely spa cloth patterns knit side-to-side. Quick to make, they’re the perfect go-to patterns when you need to whip up a nice gift – just add a lovely bar of soap. Of course, it’s always a good idea to make a few for yourself, too!

The stockinette and lace pattern in the Race Day Spa Cloth reminds me of pennants one might see on the day of a big race – like the one between the Tortoise and the Hare. This cloth is knit sideways, using pima cotton to create a soft, luxurious and pampering facial cloth, like all the cloths in the Folk Tales Spa Cloth series.

This is one of my favorite spa cloth patterns. I love the look of just a little bit of stockinette alongside the garter stitch and the lacework. Some lovely cloths have been knit so far.

I love this cloth, striking in red:

This cloth was knit by my friend Torunn. White cotton yarn shows off the stitch pattern so well! Torunn hails from Norway and staged her spa cloth with a traditional Norwegian bowl she painted (did I mention how creative she is???) and a troll doll!
