Felted Moebius Basket
I'm going to use this in my kitchen and put a couple of my knitted dishcloths in it!

After 3 trys, I managed to finish a few of the Mason Dixon Washcloths with the Bobbles...I really like this for a gift idea. The purple one has a bar of homemade soap in it. I used Cotton Rich and Sugar and Cream yarn. The Blue and White one was knit with alternating strands...that was fun.

I made up this color combo for the watermelon bobble! I used black crochet cotton for the seeds!

Thanks for looking!

You did a great job on all of them. I like the idea of putting the dishcloths in the felted basket. I may have to use that idea for some gifts.

Thanks so much! Have I said lately how much I LOVE knitting? It's so much fun!

My friend wants me to knit another Moebius Basket, so I don't forget how to do it! I might try a bigger one!

The pattern in free here...thanks to Ann and Kay from Mason-Dixon Knitting...It's on Page 2 under Kay!

I'm making another watermelon one for myself...finally found some black cotton for the seeds...going to try that instead of the crochet cotton.

Have a great day!

oh wow, those are GREAT! No more boring store-bought dishcloths!! :lol: The watermelon one is so cool and I love both the other ones too! Where did you get the pattern for the Mobieous (SP??) bowl? That is really so cute.

:thumbsup:well done!

eta: oops if I'd only read a little further! Thanks for the link-off to check it out!

Hi Hilary,
The pattern was given to me by the gal that taught me the moebius cast on...I believe it might have been from Cat Bordhi's book.

Everything looks wonderful and wow, I'm glad to see someone else knitting those dishcloths reloaded from Mason Dixon. I'm making them as wedding favors for my brother and I've been trying to make my way through 30 of them... At least I know I'm not the only one making many copies!
