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.

I'm Loopy



I'm Loopy

© Kathleen Brundige January 2010


Supplies needed:

1 ball of cotton, a solid or variagated will work in any color you LOVE. I test knitted my cloth in a self striping yarn and it looks really nice.

Knitting needles can be whatever size you like the best. There is no gauge for a dishcloth.

Stitches we will be using are:
K= knit
P= purl
SL= slip stitch from left needle to right needle purl wise, your yarn should be in the back of your work when slipping this stitch
CO= cast on
BO= bind off

Hi Kathy!

I'm trying to make the "I'm Loopy" dishcloth, but your pattern doesn't say if the yarn should be in front or in back when you slip the stitch purlwise. I tried both ways and my cloth is not coming out looking like yours. Help!

The yarn should remain in the back of your work, since you are coming from a Knit stitch to the slip stitch and then back to a knit stitch. I hope that helps. I can't email you back as I don't have your email address so I hope you check back to this comment section. I will also make the notation to the pattern instructions. Thank you for letting me know. :-)

Thank you so much for these patterns! As a new knitter, these are such a great way to practice new skills while creating pretty things for myself and for gifts!
