Mini Bath Mat Pattern Mods

If you have a tiny bathroom like we do, then the totally amazing Rag Bath Mat pattern from Cocoknits.com might not be the best choice for you, because it's way too big.



I modded it down a bit so that it fits our bathroom. Here's the deal: Go download the original pattern from Cocoknits, then come back here and use these modifications to make it smaller.
