Riddle Me This – September Dishcloth

Riddle Me This – September Dishcloth

I was so pleased with the overwhelming response from our first dishcloth KAL in August.  If you didn’t get to participate, it’s not too late, the full pattern is still available!  I had many ladies tell me they knit more than one, and with the holidays coming, why not?  If you are a returning Knit-A-Longer, or a first timer WELCOME and ENJOY!

P1020477

How it works –

Come back to THIS post every day through September, 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).

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!

Just wanted to let you know that my sister in law, Bonnie, left me one of her August washcloths and your website and I couldn’t wait to start.. After a long work day, I am excited to pick up the needles and do my two rows… Thanks to you and Bonnie I am inspired again… (and the fact that my two year old beagle, Scooter, has finally stopped grabbing the yarn and running off with it) Let the knitting begin!!!!
