Last week (the week before? they blend) Knit Picks published a new (free!) dishcloth pattern by yours truly. It's part of the 52 weeks of dishcloths series that they've been doing for a few years. I had a couple dishcloths in last year's collection, too, and I'll have another one later this year.
This one is very cleverly named the "Pastel Lace Washcloth," and you can get it for free here on the Knit Picks website. It starts with a picot cast on in the contrast color, then goes into a very easy lace section in the middle, then a picot bind off. To finish it off you then pick up stitches along each side with the contrast color and do a picot bind off there, too. Fancy.
How do you feel about hand knit dishcloths? Some people just love to make them. Even though I've designed some I have to say they're not my go-to. I just don't find myself using them. But, if you DO like to knit them, have I got the giveaway for you. This is a copy of last year's collection called Clean and Crafty, which includes my Perfectly Preppy and Kingly dishcloth patterns. I'll throw in a ball of Dishie in Silver so you can go to town and knit yourself some dishcloths. To enter to win, just leave a comment, and please be sure to include some way to contact you. I'll pick a winner on Wednesday March 14th! US only please.
