Hello all lovers of knitting,
I'm sure you most experienced knitters probably have knitted up this pattern many times. I don't know why by now I've not knitted one up as it's a basic learning pattern. I wouldn't say I'm experienced though and enjoy learning on any patterns.
I found a website (where the pattern is taken from) that I thought I would pass on to those newbies or experienced, as it's a real good site for knitting patterns and even beginner lessons.
Called Laws of Knitting, Joan, the author of the website, really explains things well.
Here is my finish:
The colorway is numbered but I would say this is a variation of Robin's Egg blue.
As most people would knit this as the title says, Kitchen Dishcloth Garter Pattern, I, instead, have a goal to make face cloths for the bathroom. I have a basket I want to fill up with different colors.
This pattern teaches:
knit 2 tog
many of the basics to learning to knit
In this pattern you can increase until you have as many stitches as you want, but suggested is 50 on the needle before decreasing. It honestly makes the perfect size for a facecloth.
The yarn is Berroco, Nostalgia.
I had this yarn in my stash from way while back, but my next ones will be knitted with 100% cotton that I have on hand. I find for the lowest cost and best softness and colorway selection, is Hobby Lobby's I love this Cotton.
Bernat cotton also makes a good quality, cotton washcloth.
So what other good websites have you found to be great references for learning?
I hope you are having a great day!
