I discovered that I had a sixteenth (urp) project on the needles:
free leaf pattern facecloth the morning I discovered this project . So I ripped out the two spikes of the pinwheel that I
already had done and made two leaf facecloths with the yarn instead.
It turns out that the leaf facecloth only takes
about forty-five minutes to make (I timed the second one), and I can get two comfortably from a
ball of the Bernat dishcloth cotton.
was a great pattern, and I'd definitely make it again (er, I already
did, after all). The only other mod besides adding the stems was to add
two stitches at the edges so I could make a chain edge instead of just a
plain garter edge. That meant the start and finish were a little
different from the pattern, but not by much.
