Once the warm weather arrives, my knitting projects become less ambitious ~ a few rows at tea time, a few more as I take a mid-afternoon break, and often a bit more as I relax at the end of the day ~ and, trying some new dish cloth patterns seems perfect for that sort of knitting.
My stack has been slowly growing as I have enjoyed some time admiring them before actually putting them to work. Then it occurred to me, surely they might be a useful gift for daughter in her new apartment... With a new purpose in mind, my enthusiasm and speed has picked up.
Below are some links to each free pattern:
Modified the three-and-one tweed pattern to dishcloth size, using Knit Pick's CotLin and size 6 needles; didn't add the edging at the end.
I used Knit Picks CotLin and size 6 needles; I also use ssk instead of K2tog just because I like the result a little better.
The color block design is how I am using up the smaller bits of yarn.
I'm modifying the basket stitch dishtowel pattern, again using CotLin and size 6 needles. I did not bother with the pretty edging.
Used CotLin and size 6 needles. Nice for using up small bits as long as you don't mind weaving in all the resulting ends.
I'm thinking one for each day of the week so I best get going!
