After seeing how much plastic that ends up in the ocean as micro plastic, I (or we) are trying to reduce our use of plastic and other things we only use onetime. One of those things are cotton pads for removing make up. I have used cotton yarn, but the pattern said that by using yarn with a cotton and bamboo blend they would be softer to use. I am not using cotton pads a lot, so we'll see what the teenager in the house thinks about these...
This pattern is from a Norwegian book with dishcloth patterns - Kluter by Bitta Mikkelborg. And as you can see they have a leaf motif that was easy to memorize.

The other one is just knitted the same way, but without the leaf motif.
