Turkish Washcloths (Lif)


So I thought I'd start making some turkish washcloths to put up on etsy since it entwines with my whole mainly "turkish" themed items!  So here they are, just 2 for now, but more to come.  I really like the pink and white one, I've included an early photo when I'd just got into it.  Surprisingly these aren't that quick to whip up, the stitch I haven't seen anywhere BUT turkish style crochet, I know its called fistik ilmegi in turkish however I'm unsure about the name in English.  I made one of these about 3 months ago and I swear by it in the shower.  Its so relaxing and gives exfoliation without being tough and abrasive.  Anyway these babies are going up on Etsy.  Enjoy.

looks like puff stitch ( body of work) and solomon's knot (aka as lovers knot) corner stitches

I looked it up and you're right wendy, however this puff stitch is joined differently. This prevents the "holes" between joined stitches becoming too big.
