Has anyone ever tried the cotton chenille yarn? I saw some in the Pattern Works catalog and it looks luxurious!! I was thinking it would make lovely gifts, but was curious how it knit up.

I noticed that my Aunt's MIL uses hand knit dish cloths and thought I would make a package and give them as a Christmas gift this year. I don't think this would be the right yarn for dish cloths however.

That yarn does look yummy, and one of the patterns you can get is for face cloths.

If this is the same yarn I saw at the yarn shop it's flat not rounded stranding. I wonder if they make it rounded as well now....I saw it years ago.

I bought two skeins of the Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille Yarn in June. It cost $7.50 for a 100 yard skein. Pretty pricey cloths in my opinion! They turned out nice, with soft slightly fuzzy feeling on your face. It's like knitting with a strip of suede, but is 100% cotton. However, on the inside label of the skein, it said to hand wash and lay flat to dry. I made 4 facecloths and gave them all away. Seems like I rarely keep anything I make for myself. LOL

I have a couple of balls of Rowan chunky chenille in my stash... I had a bundle of it and crocheted (Sp?) a table runner... I think my mother will be getting a scarf with the rest... it's very soft, but a flat, rather than round... I did enjoy working with it.
