Handmade Gift Exchange Summer 2011-Magic Cloth


This is the "Magic Cloth" I sent to my partner, Kristin. It's made with 100% acrylic, and that combined with the stitch gives it a slightly abrasive nature. When this is used with a baking soda/water solution (1 tsp soda per 1 Cup of water), it works very similarly to a magic eraser on walls--hope she likes it! I compared the use of one of these to a magic eraser on my wall, and it only took just a hair more elbow grease, but it DID take the scuffs and crayon off the wall!.

Hi! I started out with an odd number of chains, then sc and dc alternately in each stitch on every row until you reach the desired length (ch 1 and turn at the end of every row).
