Seeded Bath Set

Job type Test knit
Description

There are 5 different projects, but I only need knitters to do 3 of them.

Every knitter should do a face cloth (flat). After that, choose a version of the soap sac and the bath mitt.  You will need about 55 to 75g of cotton yarn.  The yarn I use is listed as aran.  I believe Peaches & Cream and Sugar 'n Cream are equivalents. 

I am providing yarn to 7 knitters (I need to ship, so only in the US).  You must be able to take a decent photo to qualify for that.

My pattern style is not like most patterns.  I write in full sentences, and provide written row-by-row instructions that match my Action charts, and your knitting.  I am looking for feedback.
