One of my dear friends is having a baby and I wanted to make her a pretty but practical gift. Since having a baby myself, the thing I find I’m looking for most often is a clean (or mostly clean!), soft, and absorbent cloth to wipe baby’s face, hands, mouth, or nose. Babies always seem to be dripping from somewhere and I dislike the idea of using something harsh on their delicate skin. These checked cloths are made from 100% cotton so they’re super absorbent and the checked patterns create a cushy fabric.

Each cloth requires 1 skein of yarn.
