Today’s post completes this mini series of knitted facecloth patterns. There are four designs in total, Dashed Stripe, Roman Stripe, Wavy Blocks and you will find the pattern for Stamen Stripe below. I’m sure I will be writing more facecloth patterns soon, because I love knitting them and they make lovely gifts.
The Stamen Stripe pattern uses a slip stitch to make a simple looped design. Depending on your tension, this facecloth should knit up to be approximately 6 inches square. My facecloths used 15-20 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.
