Happy Mother's Day! I am a knitter newbie.... I started the Sampler Purse http://www.frugalhaus.com/homepage/spurse.htm but am not liking how it is coming out with the Worsted Yarn that I chose (love the color but not the look) Has anyone ever used the cotton that dishcloths are made from? That may be a silly question but knew someone would be kind enough to answer.. TTFN anne
I HAVE knitted this purse, and in cotton! You can see it here. It's almost all the way at the bottom of the page.
It worked fine. Stretches just a little, but not too bad. And a machine wash and dry snaps it right back into shape.
Good Morning, I am ready to start this again with the cotton..... There is a part of the pattern that I am not sure of..When using the worsted yarn it did not seem to work right.... the pattern calls "Eyelet holes: * K 10, yo needle twice, k 5, yo needle twice, k 10 * repeat between* 3 more times. K next rnd, dropping off all yarn overs. (this will create holes ) " When I did this with the yarn it did not leave holes... is there a trick?... I "dropped" the stitches as directed..... hmmmm stumped lol. Could you help me? :thinking: Thanks so much! :sunny:
