Quick Fix

Queue it up on Ravelry. 

I couldn’t resist this yarn! It’s Peaches & Creme Lemon-Lime (100% cotton). I knit up a soap holder wash cloth thingy. It was knit in the round, alternating “linen stitch” and “gathered stitch” patterns from the 1979 Reader’s Digest Complete Guide to Needlework.

Here’s the pdf pattern.
