Knooked Dishcloths

It's been a while since I talked about my seemingly endless quest to make every dishcloth in the book Dishcloths Made with the Knook.  When I started the project, I had just learned to use a Knook and I thought working on a smaller project like a dishcloth would help me learn how to Knook different stitches and get a few gifts in the process.

I was right.

I'm a little more than halfway through the book's ten dishcloths, and dishcloth #6 was the Mini Blocks pattern.

I used the H/8 Knook and 2/3ds of skein of Sugarn' Cream in the Red colorway.  Yes, just red.  It was part of a set of three for a little stocking stuffer gift for my mom so the color wound up being very festive.  I also made these two dishcloths.

The Textured pattern.  I should have used a solid color.

See? Texture!

The Sunny pattern.

I folded up the three Christmasy-colored dishcloths, stacked them, and tied them up with a ribbon.  My mom was enthusiastically thrilled with them, and I rested on my laurels for a while and took a week-long break from any kind of gift knitting.  I don't think I have any dishcloth gift events or holidays coming up any time soon, but I'd like to have a stash set aside.  I'm not sure which pattern I'm going to pick, but I do have the yarn ready.  See?

Back to the Mini Blocks dishcloth. 

I liked this pattern a lot, and now that all of the Knook tutorial video posts are up on the blog, I thought it would be nice to link you to the posts addressing the stitches you would use if you were Knooking the dishcloth.

If you bought the book.  Which I think you should, especially if you want to practice lots of stitches on the Knook.  Which I think you should.
