On The Needles - March 8, 2013

I've been wanting to make this round dishcloth since I saw a dear friend making one several months ago.  I believe the pattern is one that has been handed-down and passed around for decades.  There are seven sections and each section consists of twelve rows.  No fancy stitches...just knit and an occasional yarn over.

I've never actually used a round cloth before but the size seems perfect for my hands.  As you can see, I used the Bronze Blue colorway of Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn and I think the multicolor yarn works well for this design.  As usual I used my favorite 16-inch circular size 8 plastic needles but straight needles would work just fine for this pattern.  I just like those needles because they're easy to handle.  The washcloth measures a little over 9" diameter.  

Another recent finish for me is the One Row washcloth that I blogged about a few weeks ago.  I have some commercially made dishcloths that are rectangular so I made this one longer instead of square and added some contrasting yarn for interest.  It measures 11-1/2" x 9".  

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out what others have on their needles this week at Patchwork Times.
