Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
– Coco Chanel
When looking into the background of this week’s free dishcloth pattern, the super cute Hipacious Houndstooth Dishcloth, I learned some fun facts. First, the oldest known occurrence of the unique checked pattern was a cloak dated between 360 and 100 BC in Sweden, though contemporary patterns were to have originated in Scotland. Second,the smaller scale version of the pattern is called puppytooth, which delights me to no end.
Designed by the wonderful Jennifer Pionk this dishcloth a fun variation on the standard black and white pattern. The simple pattern has a one row repeat, switching colors after each row. While you could easily create this pattern in the traditional colors (we’d suggest Swan and Black), you’ll love mixing & matching your favorite shades of Dishie. Go beachy like we did, or highlight your kitchen colors – you’ll be addicted to this sweet pattern.
