Knit Me Knot Dishcloth

The Knit Me Knot Dishcloth started out as an "I wonder if I can make this happen" experiment. I actually prefer to knit my dishcloths. Cotton yarn is a bit more expensive and knitting helps the yarn stretch farther. I have a friend that really loves the very popular, traditional, corner to corner, knit dishcloths but doesn't know how to knit. She loves the little ridges because she can get her finger in there and scrub better. She does know how to crochet but hasn't found a pattern she really loves yet that has that scrubby feature she likes. Since I was making dishcloths anyway I decided to play around with my hook to see what I could come up with that might be more what she was looking for and the Knit Me Knot Dishcloth was born!

This pattern has been sold to All Free Crochet. You can find the pattern HERE.


{If you are curious about the knit pattern, I usually just make mine using a pattern that a lot of knitters are probably already familiar with. I didn't feel it was fair to write it up since it is exactly the same as a number of other patterns already in existence. So if you are a knitter and would like to make one like the one I have pictured next to my crocheted Knit Me Knot Dishcloth you can fine a free pattern HERE.}

Hope all is well where you are, thanks for stopping by today. Be Happy!

Five point flower accent

Does the purse, hat, dress, or blanket you just made need a little extra something?? Here is a great five point flower accent that works up really quickly and can add just the perfect little something to any finished project. I used it to accent my sunhat (to be released soon).



If your project needs a little accent this is the perfect one!
