Taking Requests

Hi
I just wanted to make it known that I am willing to take requests for dishcloth pattern ideas. I am still learning but am willing to try anything at least once. Feel free to post requests here or email me at gimpykatk@aol.com. Please put pattern request in subject line so I can read it right away. And please remember to leave a way foe me to contact you if I am able to create your request.

My camera is not the best so if you make one of the patterns and get a better picture, I'd love to see it and maybe use it as the example photo.

If you are not a knitter and would rather have a finished knitted cloth of any of these patterns I am also glad to knit them up for you. Contact me for prices and shipping, as they may vary depending on the number of cloths ordered.

I have had many comments regarding needle sizes used for my patterns. Unless I specify, feel free to use any size needle you are comfortable with. A picture pattern may show up better with a smaller needle if you are a loose knitter. I am a loose knitter so I tend to us a US 3 or US 4 sized needle. But there is no gauge with a dishcloth and most cloths will use no more that a ball of cotton regardless of needle size.

Thank you for visiting my blog and looking at my first sets of original patterns.

Repeat rows 1-30 until scarf is desired length

For a fun variation try making a rainbow of colors changing colors every time you repeat the pattern, you could sew on eyes for a caterpillar or worm design. A good way to use up some left over scraps of yarn.

Love all your patterns..only problem is: wasted ink & paper on dialogue before pattern is printed!
Being elderly & on low income, that's why I get free patterns here! Ink costs so much & paper too! Thanks for sharing, but isn't there a way to get just the patterns after reading blog???
Thanks again, GreatGrammie of 16!!

Ruthie, I don't have an email to reply to you directly but what I do to print out is I copy only the pattern lines to a word document and print from there. I am not sure how to make it simpler, I would love to figure out how to switch them all to a PDF with photos etc on one page and the directions on another but I am not sure how to do that yet, so in meantime copy and paste. :-)

Kathy,

First off, I love your patterns! I just found them today, via Ravelry.

Second, if you really want to add PDFs of your patterns, I found a good explanation here: http://www.blogdoctor.me/2007/11/put-powerpoint-and-pdf-files-in-blog.html .
