A Knifty Knitter Dishcloth

Dishcloth
Cotton

Denise Layman designed the April Showers dishcloth, and I couldn’t resist giving it a try. I used the blue loom and less than one skein of Peaches and Cream cotton yarn (two strands), and followed the directions on the Knitting without Needles website. This was fun and fairly easy (all you need to know is knit and purl), and if you can see the picture clearly, it should look like a flower. I now have the bug to make other dishcloths, and although it worked fine on the blue KK, I’d like to try them on a fine gauge, loom, too. All you really need is a dollar’s worth of yarn, a pattern, and an hour or two.

I bought this hank of Henry’s Attic 100% organic cotton a few weeks ago, and as always, whenever I get “nice” yarn, I have trouble deciding what to make with it. I’m considering a pullover vest, but I have yet to find a KK pattern for one I like. (Matter of fact, I can’t find any loom patterns!) I’d like to use the mock crochet stitch, which is very delicate and pretty. Here’s Isela’s movie on how to knit it on a loom, plus here’s Brenda’s lacey scarflet, a pretty example of the stitch.

I came across this website with links to a ton of loom-knitting blogs and patterns. Maybe I’ll find a pattern for my cool yarn!
