All this week I am sharing my four knitted facecloth patterns. Yesterday I posted the pattern for the Dashed Stripe cloth and today it is the turn of the Roman Stripe!
This stitch combination is simple and makes such a lovely delicate pattern, using only knit and purl stitches. Depending on your tension, this facecloth should knit up to be approximately 6 inches square. My facecloths used approximately 20 grams of yarn each.
This facecloth is knitted on size 4mm needles and using double knit wool. I used a cotton yarn called Rico Essentials Cotton because it washes well and is super soft. Take a peek at the photo below to see how the pattern looks in different colours. They are knitted in Dark Teal 40 on the left and Silver 03 on the right. If you would like to knit your facecloth using the same cotton you can buy a brilliant selection of colours online from Lemonade Yarns.
