This is a beautiful washcloth. I love the way the Celtic Weave works and the lovely texture it provides. But, I was not simply satisfied with using one color, I wanted two. That way I could really see the texture and pattern in the stitching.
After much trial and error I figured out how to work the stitches to keep the back looking nice without having random loops from where I pulled up a color or carried a color across.
This color change video tutorial is intended for persons already familiar with how Celtic Weave is worked. The Celtic Weave stitch with a little patience is a ‘quick learn’ and can be found Here if you would like to give it a try before trying the color change tutorial
*note* I am aware that I call the Alternate DC Starting Chain a Standing DC, hopefully this will not cause any confusion.
Sugar and Cream
Finished size is about 7×7 inches
With main color CH31
1. SC in 2nd CH from hook and across. Turn
2. Work Alternate DC Starting Chain in first stitch, and Celtic Weave across changing colors as desire. Finish with DC in last stitch.
Continue working row 2 until desired length is reached. For help with color changes refer to the video embeded in this post.
Edging – Finish off all colors except color to be used for edging. Insert hook into the stitch adjacent to the location of edging color, pull up a loop, CH1 and SC in same stitch and across to corner, *work 3 SC in corner stitch, SC across next side*, repeat from *to* until you meet up with your first stitch of edging. Finish off and Invisible Join – Look At What I Made
