Pure” Washcloth
Inspired by the "Knit to Live" washcloth. I've often wanted to make some wash cloths, but did not like the patterns out there. It seemed that the chinese characters so often used for garden rocks would be very nice on something to wash your body. I chose the first character in pure for this piece.

Square washcloth with Chinese Character for Pure in center.
