Well, this little pattern was easy! Fun, too!

I use white cotton cuz colors can't be bleached.

I use Clorox Cleanup to spritz my dishcloths to remove coffee stains and tomato based stains. Colors won't allow the bleaching. Been there, done that. Also, I've found that Sugar 'n' Cream cotton dishcloths fade very fast. Even without bleaching. My sunshine yellow dishcloths are now cream, and my french blue dishcloths are gray. Maybe its my TIDE liquid detergent.

I'm gonna send this pawprint dishcloth (with the scrubbie I made last month) to my SIL who lives in Birch Tree, Missouri. She loves dogs and takes in every homeless stray that wanders by!

BTW: the scrubbie was knit with one strand of white cotton and 1.5" wide nylon netting strips. The nylon strips are colorfast. You can bleach them til the cows come home and they retain full brilliant color!

Nice dishcloths, I think I might make one. I have made a couple of the scrubbies and they work great. Even made one for my MIL who wants some more.

I was going to stop on my way home from work tonight to get yarn, the Sugar and Cream as I know I can get that locally. Now I'm not so sure. What cotton yarn is everyone use and like for projects like these?

I don't like the cotton yarn I used, it was from Mom's stash, so I'm going out to look for nicer stuff. I suppose white is a good idea, for bleaching.....but not nearly as much fun, boohoo.

I do bleach my colored ones, and then they look pastel.

So I finished a second one,(green) in nicer yarn that I got from Smiley's yarns. I think it t looks much nicer than the first one. A more 'pearlized' cotton is what I prefer.

Hi,

I saw this pattern and thought it was adorable. But I switched it up a bit; I also saw a baby bib pattern that I wanted to try (in the Mason Dixon knitting book), so I combined the two. The main part of the bib was just about the same size as the dischcloth, so I figured, what the heck! I used Sugar and cream, a lavender color.
