In my quest for dishcloth/washcloth patterns to try I stumbled upon the Yahoo Group - "Monthly Dishcloths". I've only been a member for a couple of weeks, so I haven't had a chance to look at all the member photo albums. What I have seen so far is awesome.
Each month members get the pattern clues for two KAL's (Knit-A-Longs), one at the first of the month and the second one starting around mid-month.
Soon after getting the clues for Day 1, I got out my yarn (Sugar N Cream 100% cotton yarn......White and Blue Jeans) and size 6US needles and began knitting up the November 1st KAL. There were a total of six daily clues and each one covered about 10 rows.
Looking at it from a different angle, the design magically appears.....
I think the snowflake would show up better had I used a darker blue.
Here's what it looks like from the wrong side.
This was a very simple pattern for work with only two different stitches - knits and purls.
If you haven't done this kind of knitting, I suggest you do. My friend liked it so much I decided to give it to her so now I have to make another one to keep for myself. These would be great little gifts for special friends. I'm thinking I'd like to do this pattern with a different contrasting color.....perhaps red or green for the holidays.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Knitting,
