January Dishcloth

Did you know that there is 354 days till Christmas? For us crafters it’s never to early to start thinking about Christmas.  My knitted dishcloths have been a hit, and my sweet sister even requested another set for Christmas 2015.

Via Pinterest, I found a blog post on Kathleen’s Creations blog where she donated a set of 12 dishcloths to charity, one for each month of the year. Each dishcloth was a different color and matched the month. I loved the idea so I have decided to adapt the idea to work for me.  I have been scouring the internet looking for free patterns that will make dishcloths that are the same size to create a set for Christmas 2015.

For January, I purchased a couple skeins of Robin Egg blue by Sugar ‘n Cream and knitted up a snowflake pattern by Monnibo Designs that I found on Ravelry (here). It should come as no surprise to you that I changed the border on the pattern by slipping purl-wise the first stitch of each row in order to create a smoother border. I also used a size 6 needle, instead of the size 7 she recommends.

If you are interested in the set, check back on the first Monday of each month a new pattern.
