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.

Stitches used:
CO= Cast On
BO= Bind Off
K= Knit
P= Purl
YO= Yarn Over
K2TOG= Knit 2 stitches together at the same time
SKPO= slip 1 stitch purl wise, K 1 stitch, pass slipped stitch over knitted stitch
S2KPO= slip 2 stitches together purl wise, K 1 stitch and pass the two slipped stitches over the knit stitch



(K1, YO, K1, YO, K1, YO) in the same stitch, (you K1 but don't pull the stitch off the needle yet, then wrap the yarn around the right needle, go back into the same stitch on the left needle and K1 again, YO and then K1 in that same stitch one more time.) Doing this will create 5 stitches out of the one stitch. This is similar to the beginning of a bobble stitch only instead of decreasing them down right away to make a bobble you leave the extra stitches on the needle and decrease over the following rows as directed

Note the # in ( ) at the end of each row indicates the number of stitches that should be on your needle at the end of that row. This varies throughout the pattern so do a quick count at the end of each row to make sure you are good.

Needle size is based on your preference there is no gauge for this dishcloth
Should take a ball or less of cotton yarn, any color including variagated should work well.

Actual finished size will vary based on how you knit and needle size used. Sample photo was knitted with size 4 needles and is appx 9 1/4".

The picture does not begin to do this pattern justice. It's gorgeous! I am going to knit several of these in various shades of pink and then join them together to create a small, lightweight throw for my guestroom. Thank you so much for posting it!
