What a pretty cloth! It looks like the knit version of the Tunisian Short Row cloth that I was recently introduced to by Merryknitter here on KH.

Aren't there so many creative and clever people out there?

Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern. I am on a cotton cloth kick lately so I'll have to give this one a try too!

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.

Very pretty. I have been knitting dishcloths with patterns. I have finished the ladybug, duckling, butterfly and sailboat so far.

I must admit I knitted this one but just could not push myself to use it as a dishcloth....It now sits on my dressing table as a doily

Thank you all for your replies. My husband has taken a photograph of the dishcloth, but I haven't got it on to my computer yet. Once I do that, I'll see about posting it to the forum.

I also think it looks too pretty to be used as a dishcloth or a washcloth. It has also turned out quite small, so I would agree with the idea of using it as a doily. I have sewn up the hole, but left it so that the stitches can be removed easily as I think it looks all right a a doily with a hole.

Biztec, what part of Northern Ireland is your family from? I am in County Antrim, but grew up in County Armagh. You will receive a warm welcome if you come visiting this wee country of our's!

Pretty Dishcloth
Saw the pattern for your dishcloth- very pretty! I am working with worsted yarn for a dishcloth pattern that was in this beginner to knit book I bought- however, I think I have made my first cast on stitches too tight- as I have knitted 3 rows and it has been extremely hard. Am going to watch Amy's video on knitting to see what I am doing wrong.

Hope you got sorted ok.

Well, I thought I had finally got a pic of this project on a computer. We couldn't put it on this one and I thought my husband had put it on the main computer, but he said only the card was in the computer - the pics had not been transferred. So I continue to wait very patiently.
