Love Potion Washcloths knitting pattern.

Since yesterday the fourth pattern of the Potions! collection's been available in my Ravelry store. I wanted to blog about it in the evening. Sadly a thunderstorm decided otherwise (yes this once again means the sun is gone after shining for less than two days). So breakfast post this morning instead!

It's been a while since the last batch of square shaped washcloths. This round I went for hearts. As usual they'll knit up into 8x8" squares and can be used in blankets or other modular items. Why not knit the whole set of 4 and sew them together in a pillow case? Or maybe knit them with cotton yarn as a present for your beloved one?

You can get them on Ravelry from this Love Potion Washcloths page. There's even a coupon code in the notes on the pattern page until May 20. If you don't have a Ravelry account you don't know all the awesomeness you're missing you can still get it for $2.00 from here: 

Aren't they cute?!!!

Yarn: Any aran or worsted weight yarn - 80 yards per washcloth / square.
Gauge: 20 stitches x 28 rows = 4”. With this gauge you get an approximately 8 x 8” square. You can make it larger or smaller playing with gauge and yarn thickness.
Tools: Size US 7 / 4.5 mm straight or circular needle (or size to get gauge if it matters to you); tapestry needle; scissors; (optional: 2 markers if you want to mark the right and left borders).
Type of instructions: Colorwork (intarsia) is completely charted and a great way to use up your leftovers; there are long written notes about how to use the charts.
