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.

Supplies:
Any color or type of cotton you like (2oz)
Needle size your choice (sample knitted with a US3)
Finished size appx 9x9
 
Here is a breakdown on the special stitches you will find in this pattern.
 
P2tog= purl 2 stitches together at the same time
 
YO= yarn over (wrap yarn around needle one time before completing the next stitch)
 
KW3= knit one, wrap yarn around needle three times then continue on to next stitch
 
PD3= purl one then drop off the 3 wrapped around stitches and continue on to next stitch
 
S2KPO= slip 2 stitches purl wise onto opposite needle, knit one, then pass the 2 slipped stitches over the knitted stitch
 
S3K2PO= slip 3 stitches purl wise onto opposite needle, knit 2 stitches together at same time, pass the 3 slipped stitches over the kitted stitch
 
also note when you see instructions inside ( ) with a X and a # after, you are to repeat the instructions inside the ( ) the number of times indicated this # includes all repeats including the initial one… so if it says (K1, P1)x12 you would do that stitch pattern 12 times before moving on to the next section of instructions. If there is no # after something in ( ) then it's just done that one time.
