I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

Things have been rather quiet here at QueenieKnits the past few months.  I just completed a major pattern and I needed a break from the needles.  I decided to use my down time to dig out the crochet hooks and rejuvenate my washcloth stash.  

While exploring a stitch dictionary, I found The Wattle Stitch.  It makes an awesome, reversible fabric; has just the right amount of texture; and, is repetitive enough to give my tired brain a little break.  

Because I hate estimating if I have enough yarn for one more row before I add a border (and then ripping back when I inevitably guess incorrectly) I added a cute “make as you go” edging.  Now, when the final row is done–you’re DONE.

I’ve included directions for both DK weight (pictured here in Knit Picks CotLin)  and worsted weight (hiding in the background in Knit Picks Shine Worsted).  The CotLin makes a delicate face cloth, while the Shine makes a much more substantial fabric if delicacy is not what you need.   Both variations use about 60 yards of yarn.
