Favors for any Party are always fun to create. I wanted these to be a representation of my style and of course, my love for all things that are knit. These heart shaped washcloths seemed ideal for a baby shower. Since we know that the baby is a girl, I chose to knit these in a hot pink and a pale pink. The pattern is a variation of Grandma's Favorite washcloth pattern and is on Ravelry as a free pattern here.
To dress them up, I went to the craft store in search of something to decorate the washcloths. I found these lovely heart shaped charms and tied them to the center of the washcloth with a white bow.
Each washcloth took about 2 hours to knit so I was able to finish them quickly. I used Lily Sugar n Cream cotton yarn and Size 9 knitting needles. The finished cloth measures 8 1/2 inches wide and 7 inches high from the lower point to the highest point. The bow can easily be untied and the washcloth used by the recipient.
I am really pleased with this project. It was inspired by the bridal shower favors that were knit using the dress dishcloth pattern that I wrote about on my blog on June 2, 2016.
