Hello everyone! I just got back from spending ten days out at beautiful Lake Pleasant, Arizona. Once a year I do that. Its my spiritual retreat. Time to reconnect with God and also make an abundance of items to give away to friends and family or to sell. This year I made candles and potholders and dishcloths. I figured out the perfect pattern for a dishcloth which I will share with you. I will soon be posting the video on how to make candles with vegetable cans. They actually look pretty cool! The ones I made I did on a coleman stove out at the lake and for some reason it just seems to make them all that much more special. They are really easy to do and I think you will enjoy making some for yourself or your friends. But for now, let me give you the pattern for making the dishcloth. The pattern for the potholders is on my post “Potholders”. If you wish to purchase these potholders and dishcloths go here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/onceuponafiber
Materials: I use sugar n cream cotton yarn. 1 skein makes 1 dishcloth at least.
Size G hook
Row 1: sc in each ch across, ch 2 turn.
Row 1: * dc in first sc, sc in next sc * repeat from * to* across, ending with dc, ch 1 turn
Row 2: sc in next st and in each st across, ch 1 turn
Row 3: * sc in next sc, sc in next sc, ch 3* repeat from * to * across, ch 1 turn
Row 4: sc in each sc across, ch 1 turn
Row 5-8: * dc in next st, sc in next st * repeat across
Note: If you end the row in a sc, ch2 , turn and your first stitch will be sc. If you end in dc, ch 1, turn and dc in first st.
Repeat rows 2-8 : 3 times
repeat rows 2-4 once
End row: *dc in next st, sc in next st* repeat from * to * across. Fasten off.
Well have fun making this dishcloth and potholders and as always May your handwork be blessed and your felting fulfilling! Happy Creating!
