Riddle Me This- October Dishcloth

Riddle Me This- October Dishcloth

It’s October, already!  I am thrilled to host this dishcloth KAL, with a really special fall design!  And a really special Designer, Betty Winn.  Betty is a super talented knitter, writer and friend.  She has worked really hard on this cloth, it does have a picture to guess, but it differs from our usual cloths in that it uses cables to show the design.  If you’ve never knit cables, don’t worry, they are deceptively simple, and we’ll provide ALL the instructions, you can do this!!

P1020477

How it works –

Come back to THIS post every day through October, and I’ll add 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.  Most days I’ll add 2 rows, but I may throw in a few more, you never know!

Use any worsted weight cotton yarn you like, (but a solid color will show up the design better).  NOTE- this cloth has a few more stitches than usual to accommodate the design, if you don’t like a such a big cloth, drop down a needle size, to make your cloth smaller, as a bonus the cables will ‘pop’ even more.

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.

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!

Congratulations Diana!  And a huge THANK YOU to Betty, for all your hard work designing this adorable dishcloth!

Row 57: K1, P1, K1, P1, k13, p12, k13, K1, P1, K1, P1.

BS (bud stitch):: Knit into front, back, front of next st, turn, purl 3 sts, turn, knit 3 sts tog. NOTE: as you knit the next couple of rows, poke the bud to the right side of the knitting and tightly knit or purl the stitches around it… Show it who‘s the boss ! 

LL: Insert tip of RHN into the same st in which you made the “long loop” stitch. As before, K the st and bring up a long loop, knit the 1st st on the LHN, pass the loop over the st, if needed, push the bud to the front of the knitting.

C5B: Slip the next 3 sts onto cable needle and hold to back, knit the next two sts then the 3 sts off the cable needle.

C5F:Slip the next 2 sts onto cable needle and hold in front, knit the next 3 sts, then the 2 sts off the cable needle.

    Thank you! I’ve been looking for a mystery KAL but don’t have a lot of time. This is perfect!

    I may go back and make the Sept. one as well.

    If I do enough, I can sew them together and make a blanket 🙂

    is it just me?? or is anybody else having problems on the rows for Oct. 5th ..in the Bud Stitch we are knitting into the front and back of a stitch (making a stitch) and then Knitting 3 together……..losing 2 each time!!! On the following row we are supposed to knit 38 stitches in the middle……..and there are only 33!!! We have lost 5!!! Or am I doing something wrong????

    1. Claire
      Claire October 5, 2013 at 10:21 am | | Reply

      In the Bud stitch, you knit into the front, back, then front of the stitch again. Making 3 stitches out of the 1. It sounds like you just knit front and back, which would leave you 1 stitch short each time. Hope this helps!

        Thanks for your help Claire, i will give it another go. Where was my mind?? I was forgetting the last ‘knit in front’ so of course I was missing stitches. I called myself to have re-read the pattern several times and still missed it!! Thanks again for the help. I will now redo the rows for today!! Then I shall be ready for tomorrow!! Kindest regards, and keep up all the good work XX

      You will need a cable needle, just not yet. In the bud stitch, you knit into the front, back, front of the stitch making 3 stitches out of one, hope this helps!

    Diana, i am with you, I think this will turn out really pretty, once we get a bit of additional help. No we dont need cable needles. I have figured out how to do the “bud’ stitch but end up LOSING 5 stitches!! I have even cast on stitches onto different needles with different yarn and done the same pattern rows (the ones for Oct. 5th) and STILL end up losing 5 stitches!! just cant figure out what I am doing wrong. But this Knit Along is a fun way to do something like this.

      Hi, I hope you are all having the same problem, and I hope it is that at the beginning of the bud stitch you knit into the front, back and front of the same stitch, making 3stitches out of 1, not just 2. Let me know if you are still having trouble, don’t give up!

    Diana Houston October 5, 2013 at 11:57 am | | Reply

    Okay, here’s where I was going wrong. In the LL I wasn’t reading the “Knit 1st stitch on LHN” after pulling up the loop and confused myself in the counting. Each Bud Stitch ends up with 3 stitches on needle. By the time I finished the row I had the proper number of stitches.

    Thanks for your help!

    That was great! I was a little nervous to do the weird new stitches. But I thought -hey, it’s only one row. So I just followed the directions, didn’t think too hard, and did the one row. And now I have 5 nobbies – a skill I’ve never done before. How fun!

    Diane, yes, I went into the stitch 4 rows below the 2nd stitch on the left hand needle.

    There are video links for seeing how to knit into a stitch below:
    http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/knit-below-continental

    However (correct me if I am wrong):
    Here we are knitting into a stitch 4 rows beneath the 2nd stitch on the LHN; pulling the loop through, without dropping any stitches; followed by knitting the 1st stitch on the LHN, then passing the ‘long’ loop over that stitch and off the RHN.

    I hope this makes sense.

    Ok…Amy….I got the first two stitches….but the brain isn’t getting the last stitch..
    Lol! Plus I did a row and ended up with 56 sts…obviously haven’t got it right….
    So do I go into the same st I went into in the RL st? So the two long sts end up coming from same hole….making a v shape?

  21. Betty Winn
    Betty Winn October 6, 2013 at 7:21 pm | | Reply

    Exactly right Diane. The two “V” stitches will make a pair of leaves framing the bud in the middle. You can make the leaves poke out some later on so don’t worry if yours don’t take charge yet. You guys are blowing me away. Reading how you are helping each other is a REALLY nice way to spend an evening. And… take heart, this is probably the hardest stitch of the design to do. The rest is going to be like walking down a country path on a cool fall evening with your best bud and a basket of knitting to pass the time.

    Betty Winn October 7, 2013 at 5:06 am | | Reply

    A couple of thoughts for any who are having a hard time keeping the rows straight…. if you can, copy and paste the rows into to a word document. That way, you will be able to see what your last row number is and go from there. Plus, you will have the completed pattern to keep when the last post hits. Or, multiply the current date by 2 and that will give you a hint of the row…. today is the 7th, so Claire posted rows 13 & 14. If you keep track of the days Claire posts more than two rows, you can just add them to your multiplied total.

    Diane,
    In the ‘Bud Stitch’ part, after you purl three stitches, are you knitting three st. together? If not, that is where you are gaining your stitches. You should be, purling 3st, then knitting three st. together AS ONE. Thus reducing back down to the original amount. Have another go and see what happens. Dont give up, It looks so nice when it is done.

    Owl in front of the moon in a graveyard or pumpkin patch–that perch has had me stumped!

    I am so excited. Thank you so much! It really was serendipity. I was working with a pumpkin color and had been looking at a cabled owl ornament. And then we had those bud stitches…

    What a great group of knitters. Everyone was so willing to help with questions and cheer others on through the challenge.

    And a special thanks to Claire for hosting these fun events. Betty, loved, loved the design. Can’t wait until November!

    Thanks for all the encouraging comments to be able to read first thing in the morning. And to Claire for hosting this Knit-Along, and to Betty for designing such fab things to knit. It was definately one that I will be keeping in my pattern file. Now on to This months…….where did I put that Christmas red???
