Knit Washcloth – Coney Island Scarf and

After finishing the Nantucket Afghan, I found this simple pattern for a scarf to use the remaining afghan yarn —

The pattern is a freebie from Lion Brand and you can find it here, the pattern uses a size 7 needle but it was in use for another project – the Lugana Beach Washcloth.

The washcloth is another free pattern from Lion Brand and it can be found here.  It was half complete and so I finished it up to free up my needle.  In the middle of binding off, I decided to search for alternatives for managing the messy last loop that appears at the end of the bind off.

For the Nantucket project I used a method that I found here at TECHknitting.  I thought it looked pretty good.  For the washcloth I used a different technique that I found at knit freedom and you can find it here.  I suspect that the second method will be my new go-to,  easy to execute and looks fabulous!!
