Did you know I wanted to open a yarn shop? It’s true, I did, when the kids were small I dreamed of a little charming shop filled with every color yard you could imagine.
When I was young my grandmother and my mom knitted and crocheted so I was around that my whole life.
I’m no expert knitter but there’s something about knitting and crochet.
One school year I crocheted a dozen scarves for gifts for teachers and people at school.
This year I thought I’d make some homemade soaps (How-to coming soon!) with my essential oils so, the dishcloths will go nicely with the soap.
I’ve seen this pattern a few places, it’s called Granny’s Favorite!
I liked it because it’s pretty simple and quick.
I used a cotton yarn called Lily Sugar & Cream.* They have fun colors too!
I used size 9 needles, I like the Bamboo. *
I made two dishcloths with one ball. ($3.99). There are also smaller ones for $1.99.
Cast on 4 sts.
Row 1: Knit one row.
Row 2: K2, YO, knit to the end of the row.
Repeat row 2 until there are 44 sts
Next row: K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, knit to the end of the row.
Continue decreasing until 4 sts left. Cast off.
There are lots of great videos on knitting basics. My friend Edie makes this cloth if you need knitting help.
Thanks for coming by today!! God Bless America!
