OK, I have been getting really frustrated with the online stitch libraries that are out there... they're pretty limited and there are a lot of repeats. So what I was thinking is that we could make our own stitch library.

If you don't have a link to the stitch pattern you like, just post the pattern itself here* (pictures would be awesome, as well). Please try to make sure that the stitch pattern or link that you've posted is not already up.

This is the resource that I use most often. It has a lot of nice patterns, and very clear and easy to follow directions.

* please remember if the stitch pattern is not your own design to respect all copyright laws and etc. :)

I tend to use this dishcloth pattern website (http://www.jimsyldesign.com/~dishbout/kpatterns/knitting.html) as a bit of a stitch library...most (dare I say ALL?) of the patterns will tell you the multiples of sts to cast on in addition to how many are required for a dishcloth.

I'm not sure if you had this in mind, but I did run across a stitch pattern that I really like called Sand Stitch.

Here's a cloth I knit with that pattern:

The pattern for this stitch is here (http://www.knitlist.com/99gift/towel-and-cloth.htm).

Kelly -- I like that site, too. I can always find something fun & quick to knit out there when my interminably long projects require me to take a break and actually *finish* something!!!

Kelly - that dishcloth site is wonderful! It'll keep me busy for a while ;)
Femmy, the feathers and fan are soo pretty - would make a great scarf :thinking:
I like that sand stitch too - that's one I've never heard of...
Any more??
