Hi there, I'm Loopy. And I'm a knit washcloth...hear me roaaaarrr!
Meet Loopy. Isn't he brilliant!!! And a blast to knit too. I can't believe this pattern (Grrr from last summer's Knitty) hadn't caught my eye sooner because it's super quick (Loopy here took less than 2 hours to make start to finish including embroidery, hanging loop and weaving ends!), it's super cute, uses less than a ball of stash and it's functional too!
Naturally, I had to immediately cast on for another. He's Loopy II and I've been petting him all afternoon. So soft and fluffy. I may need to knit another for myself since both these cubs have already been claimed by mine ;0)
I knit them both from stash Knit Picks Shine in Sunflower and Terracotta. I didn't know if I would have enough yarn for the full sized version so I knit Loopy using the smaller version (22 sts wide) with inch and a half loops to be safe but it turns out I didn't need to worry at all since I had lots of yarn leftover.
So I knit Loop II using the larger instructions and with a shaggier mane, and still had yarn leftover so if you knit one of these, don't fret too much. I think I used less than 70 yards even for the larger cloth.
So go knit one already. I personally guarantee that you'll be glad you did! If you're not, just pop it in the mail and send it to my kiddos ;0)
Now on to my hyperbolic pants. Heehee!
