Choose hemp or linen for a breathable option with drape, or cotton for a textured absorbent layer.
This square is a quick knit, requiring only knit and purl stitches, and other basic skills. A twisted, slip-stitched edging provides a rustic edge for linen that doesn’t gap. Both written instructions and a beginner’s texture chart are included. Wipe, as pictured in Aubergine, measures approximately 6½ “/16.5 cm square.
