Zickzack Dishcloth

I love using textured stitches for dishcloths - it makes it so much easier to scrub those dishes.  So when coming up with my newest pattern, I decided to with a fun zigzag look -  a really easy & fun pattern!  I used my usual garter for the border (it keeps it from curling!) and I just love how it turned out.

Firefly Dishcloth

In my mind, it’s Spring and I’m preparing for a long camping season here in the Pacific Northwest. At the campsite, I sit by the fire, turning my foil-wrapped potato on a stick and stirring my pot of baked beans slowly, relaxing with my husband and kids. After dinner, I wash the pots and pans with homemade dishcloths inspired by my surroundings.

52 Weeks of Dishcloths #23 – Picnic Basket Dishcloth

A few months back, I was working on a crocheted hat as part of some charity knitting I was doing.  I said to one of my friends, this hat needs something.  That's when I learned how to do a ribbing in crochet.  I love it!  So when I went hunting for a pattern to use for this dishcloth, I ran into the basket weave pattern using the raised double crochet stitch that I used for the hat and thought perfect! I used Honeydew Dishie, which makes for a nice strong fabric.

Sophia Spa Cloth

Designing this spa cloth was definitely one of those times where the yarn tells you what it wants to become.

Finally, I stumbled on a simple v-stitch pattern that used the half double crochet and I knew that this was the perfect pattern to pair with such a sophisticated shade.

Loganberry Dishcloth

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to ride my bike down to my local farmers market and choose a flat with 6 boxes of my favorite berries - blueberries, raspberries, strawberries - and of course loganberries!  When I finished my new dishcloth pattern, the bobbles resembled berries, especially in the bright Begonia pink of the Dishie color I chose.  So I decided to call it the Loganberry Dishcloth.

I'm very proud to introduce, not only my first dishcloth, but my first ever published pattern! Mrs. Hunter's Dishcloth is based on an easy lace pattern from my favorite stitch dictionary, Barbara G. Walker's A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, and named after a woman from a prominent Shetland knitting family.
