I modified the Chinese Wave on the diagonal to make my 3 corner washcloth for face and body. This is thicker than my 3 Corner Cosmetic Cloths, and big enough to wrap around my shea butter body bar.
I knit up more in two different colors; one color for the neck down, one for the neck up. Just toss them in their own lingerie bags for washing and drying.
To make my 3 corner washcloth for face and body: Using 2 strands of Pigsah's Peaches and Cream cotton yarn I followed the modified Chinese Waves pattern to about 35 stitches on the needle and bound off to create my triangle.
This knits up fast, soft and cushion-like wth the 2 strands. 100% cotton, 100% reuseable. I thank Margaret K. K. Radcliffe for the Chinese Waves pattern and ailurokat (Ravelry) for the modifications to knit the pattern on the diagonal.
I don't use disposable cosmetic wipes. I was always folding a square face cloth into a small triangle so this 3 corner cloth works perfect for me, and has less bulk. Just toss in a lingerie bag for easy washing.
To make my 3 corner cloth: I used one strand of Peaches and Cream cotton yarn and followed the pattern to 27 stitches on the needle and bound off. For a finer gauge and even softer cloth I plan to knit more in Rowan's Cotton Handknit, single strand. I knit up larger ones for face cloths using Peaches and Cream.
I boiled the 3 corner cloth in water for 5 minutes, cooled enough to squeeze out excess water and tossed it in the dryer. It shrunk from 6” to 3” across the top and from 3” to 2.5” in length unstretched. I used scrap yarn and didn't think to measure the yardage. If I knit more using this yarn I will post the yardage.
A quick knit! 100% cotton, 100% reuseable. I thank Margaret K. K. Radcliffe for the Chinese Waves pattern and ailurokat (Ravelry) for the modifications to knit the pattern on the diagonal.
