GG, I see that Woofens beat me to it! I think it's really fun and you could go crazy w/ color combos; they are endless. Several people experimented and made swiffer cloths. One person made a blanket, and one person sewed two together for a really cool squooshy potholder! I love this pattern!

I think you will like it. The designer modified it from a sock pattern she saw. It would lend itself to lots of things, I think! But, it is thick! The dishcloth isn't quite 1/2 inch thick, but almost. For a sweater you could use thinner drapey yarn or you would look like you were wearing a potholder!

[quote=GrumpyGramma;1383930]Since several of us seem interested in knitting dish cloths currently, maybe we should start a KAL for posting links to patterns and FOtos and sharing ideas and maybe a bit of *itching too. Just thinkin' out loud so to speak.QUOTE]...

Cheers to that, I like this idea, especially the itching part I'll be able to join in by the weekend. Did you want to start it sooner than that?

I tried it earlier (without a life line) and got about halfway through the second half of the pattern before I got totally turned around, and I was knitting it way too tight, so I frogged it and plan to cast on again in the morning. I've got the idea of it now, I'm sure I can work one up tomorrow. Thanks!!

We could start a Dishcloth Club with exclusive membership open only to those who knit, are interested in knitting, like to knit dishcloths or are like the idea of trying new stitch patterns. That should keep out the riff raff.

If someone starts it I'll be there, whenever it gets started.

How does one go about starting such an "exclusive" ( ) club?

I dunno. That's why I haven't done it. Is there a forum for KALs? I think there might be. Do you think that membership restrictions like those would keep the riff raff out?

I actually LOLed at the riff raff comment but it's probably not a bad idea

There is a Knit Along forum. I'm afraid your restrictions would keep me out since I'm only interested in kitchen cotton placemats and 6-10" multipurpose swatches for them.

(Love the idea, by the way, since I'm finding that towel/dishcloth patterns are a good place to start with placemats. Also, if I ever finish said placemats, I'm going to start making gift dishcloths because I'm going to be really good at it by then! )

So why don't you start the club? Placemats are just dishcloths are steroids after all.
