trouble before with my wrists from not knowing when to stop. I like to keep a stash of them in my 'gift drawer' for when I need a gift for a special friend. My stash has been running low and so this summer I've been trying to replenish it (in moderation). Here are a couple of my favorite dishcloth patterns:
~this is the "granny dishcloth"...my dad requested these for Christmas last year. He does the dishes at my folks' house and this is his dishcloth of choice! Gotta love that! This is the easiest dishcloth in the world to knit. (follow the link above to see a full shot of the granny dishcloth)
~this is the "waffle knit dishcloth"...it's easy too and it's a fun one to add stripes to. I love to make two of these that match and give them as a set. I only have one of these done, but the next one will be the opposite of this one. It'll be cream with a tweedy red stripe.
~this next one is fun when you want a bit more of a challenge but aren't wanting to tackle a big project. Dishcloths are great for (almost) instant gratification. This one also knits up the biggest of all of the ones I show here. It's called "spring is in the air"...but you can knit it anytime.
~this "feather and fan dishcloth" pattern is my favorite. I especially like it knit up in the variegated yarns...the color patterns are really cool. This one actually got finished and was immediately employed in our kitchen....before I got a finished picture.
~I just knit two of these "double bump" dishcloths and I have to say, they are fun to knit...very easy and the pattern is quick to memorize. I picked these colors out because they reminded me of summer fresh tomatoes...yummy!
