The written pattern for the Eyelet Lace Washcloth can be used with the video tutorial on the “Handmade by Stacy J” YouTube channel. It‘s a beginner friendly knit pattern that only uses Knit, Purl and simple increases and decreases. There is also a checklist & chart attached to this pattern to help keep track of rows. Enjoy!

I’ve also created a baby blanket using a similar stitch and technique. To view the Ridges and Lace Baby Blanket, please click here.
