Alcea Cowl

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!

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.

Chevron Lace Tank & Hawthorne Socks

Projects have been flying off my needles lately! Between puttering in the garden and blowing through stacks of library books I've been clickty-clacking my needles together on some light weight projects, perfect for sunnier days. First up on my summer list was Mari Chiba's Chevron Lace Tank pattern from the In Bloom collection.

Sophia Spa Cloth

Designing this spa cloth was definitely one of those times where the yarn tells you what it wants to become. I had been swatching away with different stitch patterns and nothing was quite right for this delicate and pale shade of lilac. 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.

Mrs. Hunter’s 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.

Citrine Washcloth

Dandelion Shine Sport never looked so good! Shine's soft cotton blend combined with the bumpy texture of this stitch results in the perfect washcloth. There are no decreases or increases involved either! Each "bump" is formed by creating a small chain of knits in a single stitch and then the chain is popped to the front of the project on the next row. It's such a fun stitch to work with! Plus there's a simple four row repeat that's easy to memorize and quick to knit.
