Riddle Me This- February

Riddle Me This- February

Happy February Y’all!  It’s time again for another mystery dishcloth KAL!  This one is an awesome collaboration between two great minds.  No, not the greeting card companies and the candy manufactures!  Betty and Eva worked together to design this spectacular cloth.  I know I say it almost every month, but this one is really one of my favorites so far!  My only hint this month is no pink!   Welcome everyone!

P1020477

 

How it works -

Come back to THIS post every day through February, 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.  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 guess correctly will win a prize from The Quarter Stitch in Wilmington, NC!

HERE WE GO!  Good Luck!

    Shamrock was my guess early this morning on the Jan KAL page. If we’re not to use pink, maybe we’re knitting ahead for March. I’ using pale green, just in case.

    Here we go again..large cloth,not pink, February with lots of events…my first thought was Cupid also..but may be an ax chopping down the cherry tree. Should be fun once again. Stay warm everyone…more snow for Iowa…more time to knit and get the stash made into warm hats and scarves for homeless.

    My guesses for February—-vase of flowers or a dozen roses with or without the vase or roses in a box with tag or a note. Box of chocolates showing different shapes. Box could be square or possibly a red heart shaped box. A cherry tree being chopped down by boy Washington. St. Patricks day–Erin go Blarn or whatever that saying is(I’m not Irish as you can tell). Four leaf clover, Happy St. Patricks Day. Wearing of the Green. Luck of the Irish. A Good Day to you or other Irish sayings. Spring flowers. Group of Hearts. I Love you with heart symbol.

    Hi Claire, I’m back for my second month. What fun last month. I’m sticking with some of the knitters that say something to do with the presidents. Maybe a piece of pie. Or here is a big if how about the Olympic rings. I know it’s just a guess. Have fun everyone.

    Well since everyone else is just guessing I might as well guess also. I am going to say a penny with Lincoln’s profile. Or maybe a football or the roman numerals of the Super Bowl. Log cabin or Lincoln’s hat. This is one of my favorite things to do since I joined in December. Can’t wait to see what it will be.

    Question? Having tried the new stitch on a scrap yarn, I came out with 3 wraps aroumd 3 sts., then knitted same sts., so the count does not change. Is that correct? Sure is tight. Hope there is some input today. Thanks…Dixie

      I’ve made that stitch before & you’ve done it right. I try to be sure the wrap yarns aren’t pulled tight…they just lay flat at the base of the 3 stitches when they’re knit.

    Thanks, ajsgramma. It’s interesting that I didn’t find it in any of my knitting books Finally found a 1 wrap on You Tube. Does it have a stitch name? Guess I’ll loosen up those stitches on the dishcloth. Thanks for the reply.

    I will return a favor for favor to all, especially those who go to work in the morning. I check my email last thing at nite and found Claire puts next day stitches on then. May be helpful to many of you. Have a great day! Dixie

    I will agree, the middle 3 stitches do look like a rosebud or small flame at this point (especially after the 2 over 1 purled cable today), but I’m still baffled by the design to the right of that when looking at the front…..can’t wait to figure this one out! great job Claire and friends!

    I take advantage of so many people all so’ kind to know if i made the right stitch (3SW). I put 2 sts. on cable needle in front of work. Purl the next st. and i put it back on the left needle 2 sts. pending and i worked in knit into back. I did it right? Thank you all so much for the help. A big ciao.

      Betty February 5, 2014 at 3:35 pm | | Reply

      Hi Maria…

      If you are doing the wrap stitch (3SW) you only slip the 3 sts from the left needle to the right and back again until all three wraps have been made, by then the stitches should be on the left needle again with you ready to knit them ( the yarn will be in back).

      The T3F – is a twist : you put the first two stitches onto a cable needle and hold them in the front of the work, then purl one from the left needle – leaving the new stitch created on the right needle, then knit into the back of each stitch (2) on the cable needle – making a total of three new stitches on the right needle.

      Hope that helps.

    Heather, I, too am baffled by the t3f being off to the right.

    Hey, Joyce..isn’t this a dilly?? Looks like you did the same as I did. I didn’t do enough of the 4-1′s after the 14. That is why I have begun to count the stitches left on needle after about the middle so I don’t have to ‘tink’. This one is more challenging
    so far and wonder if the end result will surprise all of us. Interesting that many of us long time knitters never heard of sw or tf. No matter, we are having fun

    Wow, thanks guys ! I took your salutations to heart and had a very nice day knitting today. I’m so happy to be included in this group. Reading all your guesses is a kick and , yes, it is fodder for more ideas down the road : ). I guess I should mention that sometimes I make a stitch up, as in the twist, so it really doesn’t have an official name – not one that I know about anyway. Of course at one time I thought I had invented the “life line”. I was knitting my first lace piece and decided, after frogging a couple of times, that if I ran a length of contrasting colored yarn through each stitch on the needle, any more lost sts would only run down that far. The trick worked like a champ and I was soooo proud. Ha – until I went to the knit shop to show it off and right away the owner said “oh yes, you used a life line”. Well son of a gun : ). Happy knitting ladies !

    I am feeling the love with all of these new stitches. I agree, 2014 and the Olympic torch. Excited to see what is next. Maybe the rings, maybe figures depicting different events like they showed in the opening ceremony. Here is wishing everyone lots of chocolate today:)

    Egad! Just realized the numbers are reversed as I am a left-handed knitter. I am using white yarn and design didn’t show clearly until today. Doesn’t work to use reverse side either! This is why I prefer to use charts which of course would spoil the surprise.

    I like the olympic theme. I see the 20 and the 14. So thinking maybe torch in the middle and USA across the top. For the girls that are left handed – I too am left handed but learned to knit right handed. Not too hard. I do crochet left handed.

    I knit left-handed (backwards) and crochet right-handed. I’ve done it this way for 70 years so am reluctant to change now. Will rip and start over. This has happened many times. It’s a good thing I’m a “process” knitter.

      HI Heather…

      I gave the cloth I made away but from the picture I think the pattern will work out as it’s written. In my quest to knit by the seat of my pants, I think I didn’t allow enough room for the pattern so had to use that extra space stitch to make it work. oops : ) Good catch though.

        I’m working it with those two – there’s nothing near the border in those rows, I’ll keep my eyes open in case something further up gets close, understanding we need some white space for the patterns to show!

          no problem – I actually chart the instructions out as I’m going so I can see my mistakes easier – I just noticed it as I was getting to that row. Easier with the picture in front of me instead of just k1p2 etc instructions where I get tangled up in the rows above and below (nothing like starting row 17 instructions and half way through reading row 18 – it really doesn’t look pretty when that happens!)
          take care – loving the pattern!

    I still think it will be Olympic rings but an extremely wild guess in case it is not the Olympic rings. It could be a 2014 birthday tribute for next month to Elton John with his glasses and candle in the wind. I know, that is really stretching it. LOL

    Looks like the bottom of the three tings are starting to appear.

      Hi Deborah,
      I’m keeping the purl boarder all around as well – so I’m making the following modifications:
      row 56: k1, p1, k41, p1, k1 (same as row 4)
      row 57: k1, p1, k1, p39, k1, p1, k1 (same as row 5)
      this keeps the purl boarder up both sides and a double row at the top that matches the bottom before the 3 rows of seed stitch.
      Happy knitting – this was fun!

    Claire, thank you for such a beautiful pattern! I decided at the end of January that I was going to knit February’s cloth in blue as my daughter was pregnant and no one knew the sex of the baby. I was sure it was going to be a boy…not a doubt in my mind. Was I surprised when my precious GD was born on the 10th of this month. I am going to block this cloth and put it in a beautiful box with her name on it explaining the process and that she had the priveledge of being born during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. 30 years ago this August, my son, her Godfather, was born during the 1984 Summer Olympic Games…right as Mary Lou Retton scored her perfect 10 in gymnastics. It will be a beautiful keepsake for her to remember the day she was born! Thanks again!
