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.

Complete stitch guide:
CO=cast on
BO= bind off
K= knit
P= purl
S= slip stitch from one neeedle to another
WT= wrap and turn
CNB= cable needle held to back of work
WS= wrong side
RS= right side
( )x= repeat instructions in () the # of times indicated

Cable- CNB (stands for cable needle back)
Slip 3 stitches onto the cable needle and hold the cable needle to the back of your work, you will then knit the next 3 stitches and then knit the 3 stitches from the cable needle and continue on as pattern instructs

Wrap and turn (WT)-
move working yarn to front or back of piece (depends on if you were purling or knitting… you’ll know) slip one stitch onto the right needle, bring your yarn back to the side it was previously on, slip the stitch back onto the left needle and turn your work and continue on as pattern directs.

(note there is a video on You tube that shows this technique, she does talk about picking up the wrapped stitch but I did NOT do that, however if you would like to feel free. Here is the link)
