Riddle Me This- Easter Dishcloth

Riddle Me This- Easter Dishcloth

2014-04-29_21.01.14 (1)Happy April!  After this blistering cold winter, I know I’m not the only one who’s glad it’s here!  This month we celebrate Easter, by far my favorite of the ‘Holy’days!  In our house it’s know as Resurrection Sunday and this year it’s extra special because my sweet little boy turns 10 years old that day!  April’s mystery dishcloth design definitely has an Easter theme, although it will not be guessed quickly!  I designed 4 cloths for this month, rabbits, eggs, rabbits with eggs, but not one of them worked.  I love bunnies, jelly beans, egg hunts in pretty baskets, those are traditions that we enjoy each year.  But we need never forget that Good Friday and Easter Sunday compleat God’s plan of redemption for each and every one of us who accept His Gift.  So with that in mind, I designed another cloth, (before you guess, it is not a cross), inspired straight from the pages of scripture.  This is a simple knit and purl design, no special stitches required, I hope that you’ll enjoy it!

P1020477

 

How it works –

Come back to THIS post every day through April, and I’ll add two additional rows  to the pattern, listing the new rows under the date they are posted.  Don’t worry if you miss a day, I will just add the rows, never remove them.     **You may find it helpful to bookmark thedomesticdash.com, so you can find your way back!**

Use any worsted weight cotton yarn you like, (but a solid color will show up the design better).

Knit so that you create a ‘firm’ fabric, to really show off the relief stitches.  The tighter you knit the cloth, the more the design will POP!  For most of you, this will be a size 7 needle.  If you like a smaller dishcloth try using a dk weight cotton and a size 5 needle.

Just for fun, if/when you have a guess as to the design, leave a comment, the FIRST person to make an exact guess will win a prize from The Quarter Stitch in Wilmington, NC!

Many of you guessed Alpha and Omega so quickly I couldn’t believe it!  Because I asked for an EXACT answer, Amy who guessed correctly on the 5th is our winner!  And her prize is a lovely skein of Frolicking Feet yarn in a colorway called Wild Violets, Congratulations!

We have another KAL starting on May 1st, I hope you will all join us again!

Row 60- *(K1, P1), repeat from * to last stitch, K1.

Bind Off.

(I gave the sample I knit to the sweet girl who leads my bible study, and forgot to take a picture first, so I’m knitting up another tonight, and I’ll put the photo up tomorrow!)

    Ok, I am back. I took a month off to finish some other projects but I really missed knitting a dishcloth with everyone. When I heard this was scripture based for Easter I was really excited. The one that always come to my mind at this time of year is John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son”. ……. Not sure you could get more then that on one dishcloth but if you can then add “so whoever believes in Him will have eternal life”. Thank you Lord for Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

    I am back. Took a moth off but really missed doing the mystery dishcloth. When I heard that this was scripture based I just had to guess. The one scripture that comes to my mind most often at this time of year is John 3:16 ” For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that who so ever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” Can’t get much better then that. I am pretty sure you can’t fit all of that on one dishcloth, but that is ok God wrote it on my heart and that is what counts. Happy Easter:)

    Well, after knitting the first six rows, I’m inclined to agree with Heather that it is the empty tomb with the stone rolled away showing that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead! He took God’s wrath we deserve so His sheep will have eternal life.

    I seem to be using the wrong color of yarn and have trouble making out the pattern. Does anyone know if a 2 oz skein of Peaches and Creme will make a wash cloth? Living in a rural area I am very limited on what I can get without paying shipping and handling.

      Hi Vicky –
      Yes – 2oz of peaches and creme will work out just fine and you’ll have some left over. I use sugar n cream (similar weight and sizing) most of the time and still have plenty at the end (not sure if it’s enough for 2 cloths from one skein as I’ve often used part of the ball for another project before I even start)

      glad to have you here!

    The flame of the Paschal candle symbolizes the eternal presence of Christ, light of the world in the midst of his people; he who is the Second Person of the Trinity, the Alpha and Omega. The Paschal candle is sometimes referred to as the “Easter candle” or the “Christ candle.” The term “Paschal” comes from the word Pesach, which in Hebrew means Passover, and relates to the Paschal mystery of salvation.

    Well, you guys have put up some really great guesses. Each time I’ve completed the two rows I take a look at my work and the only thing I can see is the bright yellow of the yarn I’m using (Easter reminds me of the sun rising with all it’s hope and glory). But… I’ve looked at it in all possible directions except for inside out and still can’t make up my mind. Whew – this is a toughie.

    Definitely Alpha and Omega but I think the wrong side is the right side.

      Heather Thomas April 9, 2014 at 9:38 am | | Reply

      I think you’re right, Sharyn! Otherwise I don’t see how the Omega would be offset to the left – seems like there wouldn’t be enough space to stack them directly overhead…so unless there’s another design element, I think they’d be diagonal, and with the Alpha toward the right (at least on this side) it seems this would be the reverse.

Only child and everyone has talked to her like a adult since she was born. Very little baby talk and it’s paid off. Now I’ve added a 2 year old that is new in my life and she doesn’t talk very well at all. What a difference. Anyway I’m enjoying them while I can. I know they won’t need me all to soon.

    My competitive nature is such that I refuse to guess unless I KNOW I am going to be right. So for me the pleasure comes from the knitting process. Knowing that no matter what else I do or do not get done on any given day, I’ve knitted something. This is followed by the joy of knowing that there are other people out there, perhaps at the same time (usually o-dark-thirty in the morning, before I go to work) who are doing the exact same thing I am. And I have managed to convince one of the women at work to do this, too. She tends to do it at night, after she puts her kids to bed – but still, we are knitting women! Yay!!!
