I had a play with a couple of patterns, and have to admit my favourite ones aesthetically are the dainty lace facecloths. There's just something so pretty about them. After knitting one and finding it strewn on the bottom of the sink with the wrong side up, I realised that that aspect of the lace facecloth was always going to bug me. I mean, a facecoth really shouldn't have a wrong side, should it? It's just a wee bit impractical. Now I'm not particularly orderly or anal when it comes to housework, so I'm not sure why this facecloth thing bugged me. I guess it's a bit like the wrong side of the scarf saga.
A facecloth pattern using the stitch pattern from Buninyong.
The facecloth uses one more repeat widthwise than the scarf does.
Like the scarf, the pattern is reversible. It's not identical either side, but close enough that it is pretty much a mirror image and there really is no right or wrong side to this pattern. That is pretty cool, I think.
It's a quick and easy knit that works up well with any lovely soft DK/8ply weight cotton such as the Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Cotton I used here.
The instructions are both in chart and written form.
You can find the pattern on Ravelry here for free.
