I knitted the Pink Diagonal Washcloth from Knit in a Day for Baby!
Except I didn't have any pink yarn. Or off-white yarn. So I used red and blue yarn. Other than that, this is nothing special. In fact, this pattern turned out to be the most standard dishcloth ever. This what I've always seen knitters work on when they're knitting plain ol' dishcloths. What really surprised me was that I've never made this type of dishcloth before! So strange! Especially since I love a garter stitch project.
This was fun. You increase with one stitch on every row until it's time to decrease one stitch every row. That's it. That's the whole dishcloth!
Still, I think it would be fantastic to work on something like this just any old time. It was a fun project to have in my hands while I watched TV and the stripes mixed it up a bit for me. You carry the yarn loosely on the side, and it seemed like it was incredibly obvious and terrible while I was working on it. But now that I'm looking at this, I don't think it's that big a deal at all.
I think I'll add this to my regular stash of kitchen dishcloths because it seems a bit large for a baby washcloth. But I think these bright blue and red stripes will be a cheerful addition to someone's kitchen. Okay, maybe mine. I love blue and red, and this even looks good from the 'wrong' side!
