On The Needles - November 7, 2013

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.

Here's what it looks like from the front side.  Pretty unassuming, Huh?

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,

  3. Really neat. I'm knitting dishcloths now, but that one looks more advanced. Do you have to use 2 different yarns at the same time? I love the surprise design on it.
