Free Bird on a Wire Dishcloth

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

“Bird On A Wire” by Leonard Cohen

In my neighborhood, we have several crows (or a murder if you will) who enjoy out in our large trees – teasing squirrels seems to be their hobby. I like to call them my friends (I’ll throw some peanuts out to them if I see them) because crows are my favorite birds. So I was extremely excited when we received the new member of the Scrub-A-Dub club, the adorable Bird on a Wire Dishcloth.

Designed by lovely Violet LeBeaux, this project is perfect for those wanting to try their hand at stranded colorwork. Mainly stockinette with a garter stitch border, it features a cute row of bird silhouettes along the top. As the colorwork chart is only over a few rows, this is perfect for beginners. While I like to think of them as crows or ravens, they can easily be different colors to represent your favorite birds. Knit it up in Dishie, as we have or try it in Comfy for soft touch – either way, you’ll have a perfect project for any bird lovers!
