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.

Alphabet Graph


On some of my patterns there is a need for specific letters or names. Below are the pattern requirements for the letters of the alphabet to assist you in choosing the names or letters you want to use for your specific cloth.

On my Wedding Cloth in particular, the letters are 5 stitches wide and will hold a name of up to 5 letters long, so all these letters are designed to accomodate that pattern.

You can make adjustments for longer names by increasing the size of the cloth or changing the layout of the letters.

Thank you for the Alphabet pattern! I have been wanting to do this. I wanted to make washcloths for my grandchildren for Christmas. I have 14, with #15 due in January 2010. I love to knit with the raised designs on them.

Again, Thank you!

Thanks for the lovely alphabet pattern. I am so glad I found one, thanks. This will be fun to do as facecloths for my 4 grandchildren. I will do them in all different colours so they can be hung up on their wall to learn the alphabet. This is so great, thanks again. If I have any I will be sure to post. Did you try making bath mitts? They are so easy to make. Here is my email Litlon713@hotmail if you have any new ones popping up in your mind.

NICE LETTERS. FOR THE LETTER A SAYS KNIT 5 WHAT DO YOU DO FOR THE REST AND ALSO ON THE CHART OF YOUR ALPHABETS ARE THE WHITE SQARES PURL AND BLUE SUARES KNIT
HOW WOULD YOU JUST KNIT A SAMPLE TO SEE IF THE LETTER A COMES OUT

Thanks for the small alphabet letter charts and directions. Most I have found on the internet are too large for what I had in mind. Thanks again.
