Knit an exfoliating mitt, washcloth or soap satchel for your next shower or bath! This quick and simple knitting pattern guides you on a project that uses bast (plant) fibers like wild-grown nettle and cultivated hemp from Nepal. These yarns feel stiff while knitting, but soften over time and with repeated use. Handspun can vary slightly in gauge from skein to skein, so gauge is approximate.

These samples used: Himalaya Yarn Tibet Hemp
                                   Himalaya Yarn Tibet Aloo

Any plant fiber yarn with the right gauge is a good choice.

Mitt Gauge=11 sts and 15 rows=4” in garter stitch with one strand of each yarn knit together on size 8(5mm) needles.
