Leave No Stroll Bright Behind


I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I love Stroll Brights. I think in the last office meeting here at Knit Picks I might have been referred to as “Our Lady of Stroll Brights”. I’ll take it! Now that my favorite yarn is back for as long as it lasts (and I know that won’t be long), I thought I might do a round-up of some great projects done in Stroll Brights. Perhaps you’ll find some neon inspiration, too.

Free Dishcloth Pattern: Woven Lines

I’m particularly excited about the free dishcloth pattern this week!  I was thinking about a scarf pattern I did several years ago, a two color striped scarf where each color was 1 row – to achieve this, you slid the project back & forth on circular needles to pick up the working yarn.

Misty Rose Dishcloth

Misty Rose is a fanciful version of a crocheted dishcloth to decorate your kitchen with as well as having a purpose. Pick two colors and create a blossom of your own.  The Misty Rose dishcloth was a fun project to design and crochet.  I have always loved the pink and grey combination, and the Dishie colors were perfect.  In this project I decided that the grey would be my pop of color. The soft ruffles gives it a feminine and a little dressy look.
