This looks very nice. I like that it looks like a dense 'weave'. Thanks for sharing and Happy Holidays. Cathy

I may get to making this, this afternoon.

I have so much cotton yarn, that I do not think I can use it all in my lifetime.

Maybe I should make a set, with a washabi, and try to sell them all.

Cathy - It uses the seed stitch, which makes a tight but pretty pattern. Thanks for visiting!

Fawn - I'm the same way, except I have to much yarn in general, lol. Good luck with your sales! :)

TY for sharing this wonderful pattern! I love that it's simple yet lovely. Adding a little applique' would be a nice touch too, I think. I'm going to make some washcloths & matching hand towels to use in the bathroom, & maybe add appliques to match different holidays to some of them. These would make awesome gifts!
