I'm knitting a washcloth and towel set (and hopefully a sachet as well) for my mom, using Bernat Cottontots.
The washcloth I'm doing as a mitered square, in pink and yellow (she likes those colors)...
I would like to do a matching hand towel, but I'm not sure what sort of stitch pattern to use (if that's the right way to phrase it). I saw this pattern for a guest towel, but I have tried the mock cable thing a few times and can't get it to work.
And, I'd really like to try something new and exciting for the towel, after doing all of this garter stitch for the washcloth!
But, I want it to look ok with the washcloth too, kwim?
Any recommendations? I really think the dragon scale pattern is neat looking, but not sure that would be advisable here.... I want it to look ok with the garter stitch washcloth, be able to wash and wear well, and I don't want my mom to have to do anything other than wash and dry it.
Any suggestions? I guess if I can't find anything that will work, I could try the mock cable thing again and post here for advice. I have tried that a few times now and it just never looks like the pictures though.
