The Moth Cloth

This design was intended to be a butterfly lace washcloth, Chris said there are too many things with butterflies on, and decided it was a Moth Cloth. I couldn’t really argue, after all it is full of holes!

Whether you decide to knit it as a washcloth, or incorporate the design into a scarf, or a blanket, just remember that you’re supporting all the unloved moths out there that get overlooked in favour of butterflies!
