This beautifully textured washcloth is a very quick project to make. It’s great as a small gift or as a part of spa set.
The name, Nenloth, means water-flower in elvish, which is really matching the finished product. 🙂

Difficulty:          

Intermediate

Size:                     

10” x 10” (26 cm x 26 cm)

Materials needed:

  • 4.5 mm Hook
  • Approximately 140 yards/131 meters (75 grams) of 100 % cotton worsted/aran weight yarn  (I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran in Rose Red)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors

Stitches used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

ST = stitch

SP = space

SK = skip

SLST = slip stitch

SC = single crochet

DC = double crochet

Puff Stitch = Puff ST

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols

Additional terms/ Special Stitches:

Puff Stitch:

Yarn over hook, insert hook in indicated stitch/space, pull up a long loop through that stitch/space (3 loops on hook) Yarn over hook again and insert hook into the same stitch/space, pull up a loop (same height as the previous one) 2 more times. You should have 7 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 7 loops on your hook, chain 1 to close the puff stitch.

Gauge:

4 SC = 1”

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, that is not counted as a stitch.
  • SLST not counted as a stitch
  • CH 3 always counts as DC
  • US terms used throughout
  • Notes are written in (brackets) to help you through the pattern
  • When you make a puff stitch, it creates 2 loops on its top. I will refer to these loops as first loop and second loop. The first loop is always the one on the right and the second one is on the left.
