Taking Requests

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.

***Note I adapted this pattern into an Intarsia method, my first try. Basically what I did was I substituted the Knit stitches on the Odd numbered rows with a second color of cotton using a bobbin. I also repeated the sequence on the even numbered rows in between. I did the entire cloth is stockinette stitch instead of knitting and purling to establish the pattern. I may try to knit it up again using the pattern as written only using the different color as the knit stitch and maybe also using the second color for the border as well. If anyone is an Intarsia knitter and would like to try this and send me a photo I'd be ever so grateful.
