I have to be honest with you. This was not a good week for dishcloths.
One crochet pattern, two knitting patterns, and plenty of cursing my bad luck later, I wound up trying the Small Pyramids pattern from Easy Textured Knits.
Well, it was textured at least.
Under normal circumstances, I'm sure this would be a fine pattern. But this week, I was apparently not up for a six-row-repeat pattern. There was a startling amount of unknitting, and I still messed up at some point in a way that I don't quite understand.
Whatever, it'll just be part of the dishcloth's textured charm.
I do like these little triangles all over the place, though. I think they're cute, and I do like for knitted dishcloths (or any other type of dishcloth, really) to have plenty of texture. I love the patterning of this!
Easy Textured Knits has 6 dishcloth patterns, and I think is the fourth pattern I've made. I like it a lot. It was in last Friday's Free Pattern Friday emailer, so if you've been thinking about trying it I'm here to say you should!
Because even during a pretty klutzy knitting week, I'm still pretty pleased that I stuck with this pattern. It's charming! And it's around 8" x 8", which is my favorite size of dishcloths. I've learned I have a preferred size for my dishcloths, and I love the size and look of the dishcloths in Easy Textured Knits.
This is a 'standard cotton yarn and your preferred size of needles type of knitting needles' type of knitting pattern. I usually stick with Size 6 or 7 needles, and I used Size 6 needles for this. It probably takes about half a skein of Sugarn' Cream yarn. I had a little less than that, and had about 24" of yarn left.
Clearly I had at least a little luck left! Have a happy crafting weekend! It's the first one of the year and I hope you have plenty of fun. And luck.
