Hold on to your britches…or better yet pass them along as a hostess gift!

Santa & Elf Dishcloth Britches

Santa & Elf Dishcloth Britches

With the holiday season in full swing, cookie swaps, holiday parties, and gift exchanges are in no short demand.  These adorable Christmas Version Dishcloth Britches, made with   Lily Sugar n’ Cream Cotton Yarn by Yarnspirations will make you the guest your host will love!  I’ve worked up the patterns and tags for you to use!

tagbritchesAttach a poem  to your washcloths (free printables below patterns.) and give them away as is or pair them with a yummy recipe and treat! I used a delicious Saltine Toffee I got from Amanda’s Cookin’ and along with the Elf Britches Dishclothes and the recipe printed on cardstock, I put them in the adorable Santa Pants Basket by Blackstone Designs. I will be delivering this to my neighbor this year.

    In the yarn section for the Santa pants you only list red, green and white cotton yarn and then in the pattern you mention black. Are you using black cotton (is there black cotton?) or a different yarn?

      Lyndsay, you are right. That was a misprint. I have fixed it. Yes there is black cotton and that is what I used to do the belt part. Thank you for the feedback it is greatly appreciated.
