We have a brand new yarn out today!
The Big Cozy (the name always makes me think of one of my favorite movies, The Big Sleep) is a super bulky alpaca/wool blend that is SO SOFT. I haven’t actually worked with super bulky yarns in years so I figured I should play around with it. I grabbed the largest needles I own (size 13) and a skein of both Marine Heather and Finnley Heather and decided to make a hat!
Hudson’s Bay stripes are an absolute classic, known as much for being hard-wearing as they are beautiful. This dishcloth celebrates the spirit of modern simplicity with stockinette stitch in four colors of “Dishie” yarn. Make this dishcloth as written, or extend the off-white color “swan” to a longer length, repeat the stripes, and make a lovely hand towel!
Participating in the 52 Weeks of Dishcloths has been an adventure. Trying new stitch patterns on a small scale fits with my crazy, busy life. I decided that a spa cloth, with a lacy pattern, would be fun to try using Dishie.
Inspired by music and the spirit of adventurous knitting, I’m proud to present the Legato Dishcloth! It’s a bright, bold, and lively addition to any dishcloth collection, knit in our lovely CotLin yarn..
You may have seen that we have some new free patterns that just hit the site. I have to say, the models have me smitten. I would say that, though, they’re my babies!
This is Lulu.
It’s so satisfying to be able to knit something up in an afternoon and be able to use it right away to get another chore done! A quick garter stitch edging is followed by a tall slip stitch pattern for extra scrubbing power, perfect for tackling difficult dishes or for deep exfoliation
I love combining unique stripes and textures with bold colors. And the Ebb + Flow Dishcloth allowed me to do both beautifully! This easy to memorize dishcloth crochet pattern is wonderful for a quick weekend project. It combines single crochet with intervals of crossed double crochet stitches to create a contracting and expanding effect.
I started day dreaming about a cowl in Lindy Chain the minute we finished unpacking the boxes here at the offices. I pounced upon two balls of lovely, rich blue Navy and decided to try an open stitch to make the perfect summer weather accessory. You can find the free Alcea Cowl pattern here on our website!
If home is where the heart is, I guess home could also be where the dishcloth pattern inspiration is, because this week I looked no further than my wonderful family for this pattern!
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.
