Last week I shared with you my first knitting project ever. Knitting is my new passion! Not that I know how to do much more than knit and purl. My husband describes my crafts as seasons. I find something new and go after it like a fully loaded steam engine. But, after a while I lose steam and interest. But until then knitting it is!
I love using cotton dish clothes in my kitchen!
- They last forever.
- They are cheaper to maintain then buying new sponges.
- No slimy feel after one of the kids leave it setting in a sink of God only knows what, just throw it in the wash
I have decided to make a set of 12 dish clothes for my kitchen. My plan is to make each of them in different pattern, but all the same color. I have chosen to use Ecru, 100% USA grown cotton by Peaches & Creme. The Ecru is nice since it matches everything and with my upcoming move, I have no idea what color my new kitchen will be. Over time white becomes dingy, cream or Ecru is a great alternative.
Are you ready for the first one? Well here it is.

I’m making this today (love the pattern, thanks) and have come to a standstill.
There are 33 stitches on rows 1-12, but the “pattern” for rows 13-16 has 35 stitches if you count stitches in the pattern, and then row 17 has 37 stitches. My row 13 ended with 11 knits, not 13, according to the pattern. I have d-checked my knitting, it’s the pattern… I didn’t go any further, but there is just knitting and purling, with no increases/decreases, so there should always be 33 stitches on the needle.
Could you please double-check this or advise what the fix is?
Thanks so much.
Oh my! I’m so sorry. Let me see what I can do to fix this. Thank you for letting me know there is a problem.
