|dishcloths made with scraps|
I made a smaller version of the cloth, made for the swap - details here - as well as some traditional diagonal cloths.
I tried a "new to me" yarn joining technique, and it is not only easy but seems to be stable, too. It's called the Magic Knot or Double Knot join - see a video below. I was skeptical about using knots, but honestly they really can't be seen or felt. I would not use the technique on a pair of socks because the knot may cause irritation when worn.
