Cotton Dishcloth
I am knitting a dishcloth in dark pink double knitting cotton - worsted I think it is in American lingo. It's a lovely pattern, but you have to concentrate to make sure you get it right. I have had to restart twice. I had it almost finished the first time, but I could see that it was not turning out the right shape at all.

Here is a link to the pattern: http://www.mielkesfarm.com/dishclth.htm.

I am working on other projects as well, but will tell you about those another time.

I've made this dishcloth and love it. It's so unusual, being round. do post pix of your other projects.

Hi Losnana,

Yes, I loved the fact that you could make something round with 2 straight needles. On my first attempt at it, instead of coming round to complete the circle, the cloth went off in a different direction. This time I am being careful, making sure I have the right number of stitches on the needle at each odd row.

Will post photos when I take them and also figure out how to upload them on to my computer.

Just wondering - did you use 4 ply or worsted cotton? I tried getting 4 ply, but couldn't get it anywhere.

I've made this dishcloth, and I loved the process. It really is a beautiful cloth and fun to execute.

Well, I finished the wash cloth about a week ago, but haven't got around to sewing it up. I will try and do that soon and take photos of that and my other projects and get them posted on this site. The wash cloth looks more like something you would put on your dresser than something you'd wash your face with!

I have also just finished knitting a hat for my daughter - I haven't stitched it up yet, but I have an awful feeling it's not going to fit.

yeah that washcloth looks pretty, and could certainly double for a doily. Can't wait to see your finished pics.

This would certainly make nice bath cloths, or spa cloths! What nice gifts, too! Thanks for posting the pattern! My printer is working right now! I am going to make a dozen of these as gifts for my daughter and daughter-in-law! How nice! But for 'the spa', not the kitchen.
They are almost too pretty for most kitchens!
