FO - Linoleum Dishcloth
Here's a fast project I started and completed while watching TV last night.

It's the Linoleum Dishcloth.



This is a free pattern, located here.

It looks difficult, but it really isn't! The slip stitches make it look like you're carrying different colors of yarn across, when in actuality, you're not! However, by carrying one yarn across your slipped stitches, you get a very thick cloth!




I used size 6 needles and Peaches 'n Cream yarn (Yellow, Cornflower, and Soft Teal).



I will DEFINITELY be making more of these!

Thanks for looking!

Oh, now you're making me blush! I think my next one will be hot pink, bright green, and something else...haven't decided the third color yet. You can really change things up simply by changing which colors are A, B, and C. It's a very versatile pattern!

Really like the way this one looks, and the thicker the better, IMHO.

Thanks for the link~~~~

ETA: After reading the pattern I have a question for you, do you think this would make a good bath mat, either sewing squares together or enlarging the pattern? I really like the way it looks, and we're using an old towel since our 15 y.o. puppy is using our bath mat as her fourth or fifth bed around the house.

Oooh, I really like that one Nathalie! Thanks so much for posting the link!! I agree - your's is much prettier!!

How about orange for the 3rd color in the other one? I think of bright, cheery dahlias when you mention the other 2 colors

Yes! That's a terrific idea!! I would just add more stitches rather than trying to seam squares together. Ahhh...I love the way knitters think!!
