|dishcloths and scrubby made for the swap|
I sent two cloths, a tulle scrubby, and some knitting notions to my swap partner - Betsy (The Simple Life of a Queen).
Thanks, Kathyb for the fun and easy swap.
The pattern I used is no longer available online, but it uses the Double Woven Stitch - YouTube has a tutorial for completing the stitch here.
Double Woven Dishcloth
made with US size 7 or 8 needles
one ball of cotton dishcloth yarn
Cast on 38 stitches or any multiple of four
Rows 1-4: Knit across
Row 5: K3, P32, K3
Row 6: K6, *sl 2 wyif, move yarn to back, K2; repeat from * to last
4 stitches; K4
Row 7: K3, P32, K3
Row 8: K4, *sl 2 wyif, move yarn to back, K2; repeat from * to last
6 stitches; sl 2 wyif, move yarn to back, K4
Row 9: K3, P32, K3
Rows 10 - 57: repeat rows 6 - 9 twelve (12) more times
Rows 58 - 60: Knit across
I followed the pattern and had 0.9 oz remaining from the
2 oz ball of Sugar and Cream
Hopefully, the scraps will make a smaller cloth, possibly with 32 stitches
WYIF = with yarn in front - the YouTube video shows this technique
Scrubby pattern can be found in an earlier post.
The package from my Dishcloth Swap partner arrived yesterday. Look at the wonderful things she sent. Five, yes count them-five, dishcloths, a skein of cotton crochet thread that is perfect for reinforcing sock heels and toes, a DPN case (Betsy made it), and some yummy tea. Thank you, Betsy for being my partner in the swap.
