Freebie Release — Flip it Dishcloth

Do you need a quick gift for the easter holidays? Here comes a Freebie to help you out — the Flip it Dishcloth!

First, you knit two triangles of the same size — then you flip one to the wrong side! Graft both triangles together and you have a dishcloth displaying both right side and wrong side at the same time!

A photo tutorial on how to do kitchener stitch with garter stitch is included in the pattern. I really love how you can play with different colors to highlight  the two halves of this dishcloth. Pssst, this one is a gift for my aunt!

Freebie Release — Mitered Rib Dishcloth

Here comes a new knitting Freebie – the Mitered Rib Dishcloth!

CIMG2904-700

Until last year, I had never used a handmade dishcloth! And yet it took only one crochet dishcloth to get me hooked 🙂 . Since then, I have made a lot of dishcloths, crocheted and knitted ones. There are two brands of cotton yarn that I love to use, Catania (Schachenmayr) and Cotone (Lana Grossa), because they are available in lots of solid colors and gorgeous multicolor balls! That’s what I used for my other two knitted dishcloths (Two Sides Dishcloth and Diagonally Twisted Dishcloth). Last time at the yarn shop, I bought a pale lilac ball. This color seemed perfect to highlight a rib pattern. This dishcloth is mitered, meaning it starts with a small cast-on and is increased only in the middle. I love how the rib pattern seems to radiate outwards from the starting point. Enough fawning, happy knitting!
