Broken Rib Seed Border Washcloth                        $2.50

The little purl bump is the star of this washcloth design.  The power of the purl strategically placed within the rib columns forces the inherent elasticity of a conventional rib stitch to lay flat.  While this elasticity may be “broken”, the regular order of linear furrows remains as a reminder of the stitch pattern’s original intent.  The alternating purls in the border not only satisfy tactile desires but also provide some grip for the user.  Once the knit-purl mantra has been established, this project is a fast knit.
