Free Pattern Friday: Quadrat Blanket

Keeping Home – January!

One of the most popular things on our site has been our free dishcloth patterns.  For two years, each week, we featured a new dishcloth that so many people used to practice new stitches, develop their skills, and of course, wash their dishes! These free patterns will always be on our site, but for 2016, we're changing it up a bit. Every first Thursday of the month, we're releasing a home set ebook - patterns for your kitchen or your bathroom, or anywhere else you'd like display or use these lovely items! We're calling the series "Keeping Home", and January's set, called "Not Your Granny's Kitchen" is just so sweet!

Twelve Weeks of Gifting: Dish Towel Set

Well folks, we made it! Welcome to our very last installment in our free pattern series: Twelve Weeks of Gifting. The grand finale and proverbial icing on the cake is our very favorite, ever popular Dish Towel Set pattern! So simple and wonderfully giftable, this is a great pattern for any knitter. I love seeing these projects knit up, tied with a pretty ribbon and gifted with a piece of handmade soap for a perfect mother's gift, birthday or baby shower gift.
