***Important Information***


Thank you for visiting my pattern blog. Any and all of my patterns are free and you are welcome to knit them up and sell your finished products if you want to. If you mention the pattern all I ask is that you link the pattern back to this blog so others can visit and find patterns to knit too.

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 yarn regardless of needle size. Also the size of the dishcloth will vary depending on your knitting style and needle size. Also blocking your cloth may also help the picture or words to stand out better.

I am also willing to take requests for dishcloth pattern ideas. I am always learning and I am willing to try anything at least once. Feel free to 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 for me to contact you if I am able to create your request.

I sometimes get a lot of requests so if I don't respond to you please contact me again, I just get lost with the "busy"ness of life sometimes.

My picture taking abilities are not always the best so if you make one of my 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.

Thank you for visiting my blog and looking at my first sets of original patterns.

What is the connection between the heart arrangement on the cloth and the name of the pattern?

Janey I couldn't tell your email address to respond, so I hope you check this out here.

My friend Shelly actually pictured this pattern and told me about it. I created it up and knitted it for her, so since it came from her heart, I call it Shelly's heart.

I'm knitting this right now as a Mother's Day gift for my Mom. My name is Michelle (but spelled funny) so Shelley's Heart is perfect. :) Thank you for sharing your talent with the world.

I'm currently knitting this pattern as a square to go on in a memory blanket for a friend who's little girl died at 2 days old. The pattern is beautiful. Thank you for writing it.

My oldest daughter passed away April 24, 2010. I am going to make this cloth in memory of her, one for each of her daughters, and myself. It is beautiful. I will do it in white. Thank you, Dotti
