Riddle Me This- January

Riddle Me This- January

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!  January 1, a fresh start, a new beginning, full of possibilities and excitement.  And what better way to celebrate than by casting on a new project!  However, unlike most resolutions, this one requires a bare minimum of commitment, just 2 lines of knitting each day.  This is a simple relief designed dishcloth, (knits and purl stitches), and the pattern starts very quickly after the border and continues up the entire cloth.  If you are new here Welcome, if you are returning, welcome back, let’s get started!

P1020477

How it works

Come back to THIS post every day through January, 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!

Cast on 41 stitches.

Row 1 – *(K1, P1), repeat from * across the row, end K1.

    Question, my mother always would knit into the back of the first stitch saying that it made a neater edge. Do you recommend this, or should I be doing the same?

    Happy New Year to Claire and all of our mystery dishcloth knitters! Just returned home from a visit with my very pregnant daughter in Fort Leavenworth. She’s due on valentine’s Day. Next month I will be knitting in blue as I THINK she is having a little boy. This is my second month knitting the mystery dishcloth. At this point in time it looks to be rectangular shapes.

    I did last month’s dishcloth and am now doing this one. I have a cone of cotton that I really think keeps going and going. I have made several dishclothes from this cone of just different crochet stitches and I still have a huge amount left. I think this is a house with a window and possibly a chimney will be on top with smoke rolling out.

    I am not very good at guessing but I am sure enjoying this pattern. It is very nice to knit up and I don’t usually do two rows at a time. It is nice to sit and do two rows a day.

    Hi I’m a newbie also. I have knitted dish/wash cloths before but realized I didn’t have any of my own. So when I saw this posted I decided to give it a try :) I have lots of cotton so I have several months before I even need to think of buying more. Thank you for your time and effort.. its so very valuable and appreciated

    Attention KP’ers on here. Did you see the post yesterday under Chit-Chat showing
    the answer to mystery dishcloth? Mine doesn’t look like that, but I was shocked to see it, and noticed it is mystery, not riddle. Then I found out there has been a Kal of d’cloths going on for awhile. Almost the same but not quite.
    I never check those, just read the daily newsletter. Just wondering if you have seen it.
    I am just NOT seeing a 4 on mine (maybe I’ll stand across the room and look),
    so I’m guessing I (heart)U.

    I’m thinking it’s I <3 at the top and 14 at the bottom – especially with this latest row having a very small bit above the obvious 4 and just finishing up the 1 – there's not a lot of space left in the pattern for anything large above the 1 on the left, and just enough to eek out a heart above the 4 – still wondering what it's going to look like in the end – execution is interesting. Love it Claire! thanks again…..

I was at the yarn shop today and saw some new needles and yarn that was perfect for my new projects. It is exciting to see all the new things in the shop. Looking forward to knitting along with the projects every month. The dishcloth is 14 on bottom so it will probably be 20 on top. Or my next guess is 2 14 14 for Valentines. Calling it a night. plenty of time to knit tomorrow.

    Thanks, Claire! Making washcloths for a Family Reunion we are having in July.

    So…no pink. That leads me to believe that February’s pattern will be something for the men/love interests in our lives.

    Than you SO much Claire! I had a wonderful time and am looking for ward to the next KAL for February. Do we use a solid or variegated yarn to best show the pattern this time? Thanks again ever so much for being the gentle push I needed to keep trying to KNIT! *HUGS* :D

    YES! Mine looks just like that (patting self on back). I’m tickled “coral” in this case. Sure thought I had goofed. Have chosen color for Saturday morning….bring it on, Claire! Eagerly anticipating the challenge and fun. Thanks! Dixie…freezing in Florida….believe me, I feel for y’all in the really frigid areas. Hope it will soon be over. Stay safe. Love ya’

    Will this website automatically change to the February pattern?

    Hello, Claire…Claire, Claire, where are you? You have spoiled me
    and I sit here poised with pen and paper and no February riddle!!
    It is my first “go to” each morning when firing up the computer and
    I’m just over-anxious for the next cloth. Hope all is ok with you…I’ll
    just have to be more patient. Love you, gal. Dixie

    Thank you for January, I can’t wait to see what February brings. I wonder if it will be a shamrock??? I’m using mint green yarn, just in case. :)

    Okay… I have the 2,0 and part of the 1 and 4 then half way through the numbers 1 and four something went wrong. It looks off… like the bottom of the 1 is with the four and bottom of the four is with the one. Anyone else have that problem???
