Riddle Me This- Summer Dishcloth

Riddle Me This- Summer Dishcloth

Ok, I’ve lost a month.  Just yesterday it was June 1, now it’s July?  Where does the time go!  Since I started doing the dishcloth KAL’s last August, it seems the months are whipping by so quickly, as soon as we start a new one, it’s over.  And I know I say every month is my favorite, but this month, this one is really my favorite.  It is one of Eva’s designs, and it is amazing.  Very summer-y, very iconic and very me, (I’ll share more of why toward the end of the month).  This month we Americans of course celebrate our Independence Day, and while I’m one of the most patriotic girls you’ll ever meet, that is not the theme of this cloth.  It is truly a summer-time cloth.  There are a few new stitches to learn, but they are simple, and oh, so worth it!  Enjoy!

P1020477

Come back to THIS post every day through July, 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!  Good Luck!

    Looking forward to it, Claire. The climate is already getting super warm, so am using Hot Pink for this one. This will only be my fourth one of your monthly dishcloths. I know, I got in late. But, I think they are fun. Coming here in order to knit the next 2 rows is something I look forward to each day. Thanks for doing these “riddles” each month.

    Hello – found the link on Ravelry and thought I would join in. This will. Be my first KAL: needed something quick that wouldn’t consume my warm summer evenings. I’ve knit the1st four in lime green. I may also work up another one in brown just so that I can work on two dishcloths.

    This is sooo much fun… I really look forward to these dishcloths each month. Although, I am not very good at guessing the design. This month I am doing mine in a variegated yarn of white, yellow, mint green, and blues… it just looked like summer to me. I hope the design shows up on it.

    Help please! My stitch count is off. I CO 41 sts. Did the seed stitch border. When I started row 3 (I’m a day behind.) I only have 35 stiches. Plus an outside border of 3 sts on each side. What am I doing wrong. Thanks so much. Love doing this KAL.

    Just a wild guess. A bird in a tree on a branch singing its heart out. Maybe sitting on a nest with eggs and they are hatching. We see the eggs and new hatchlings. Like I said–just a wild guess to get the summer dishcloth moving along! LOL

    Still early in our knitting, but how about a bowl of cherries with extra cherries laying beside the bowl. Thank you Claire for doing these every month… sort of a mystery to solve, plus a nice finished piece to use when done. My kitchen towel draw has not looked this colorful in a long time.

    Wild guessing again—–fruit bowl with various types of fresh fruit–banana, apple, orange, berries, grapes. (horn of plenty?? with fresh fruit spilling out). Berry basket you can put raspberries, strawberries, blackberries,blueberries in as you are picking the berries at you pick places. Maybe a big bowl of mixed fruit that has blueberries, strawberries,raspberry/blackberries.

    if it’s upside down – perhaps an ice cream cone – but that still doesn’t explain the U on the right….and doesn’t require the bobble blobs (unless it’s really hot and just happens to be dripping!)

    I love that I have to keep guessing and have no good ideas yet. Looking forward to Monday (I always stay away for the weekends) and catching up with extra rows all at once.

    I found your KAL last month and have totally enjoyed it! It’s nice to only have to do a few rows a day because I can’t always do it everyday. Anyway, my guess was originally a cat next to a strawberry patch but now I don’t know since you’ve connected the 2 sections. Great Fun! I hope you continue and don’t quit after the year’s out.

    I agree, I think it is some kind of fruit tree with a tire swing below. For me, the kind of fruit is in question. I think of apples with Fall. Cherries for summer. These would be some big cherries, though. Possibly oranges or lemons. Since I think it is going to be hard to call this a certain kind of fruit tree (although Claire has the right to call it any kind of tree she likes ;-), I am just going to simply guess a fruit tree and a tire swing.

    Since Sara guessed a tree with a tire swing a few days ago, every time I look at my dishcloth, it makes me smile to see the tire swing. What a great pattern this is! What better way to start a day than with a couple rows of knitting, a cup of coffee and something that makes you smile! Thanks, Claire!

    I love the idea of a magnolia tree and tire swing! I’m half expecting Winnie-the-Pooh to be standing on the right side of the tree, or Tigger to be peering out from behind the trunk! How perfect!

    I like the idea of a Winnie the Pooh theme, too. Whatever it turns out to be, the bobbles will certainly help with scrubbing dishes.

    I’ve decided that Bobbles are easier to do in crochet! LOL Just wild guesses–Oak tree with acorns with swing/tire swing. Is it walking the dog with a leash, or is it a Chinese Dragon???

    I agree bobbles are easier in crochet. Got the first couple bobbles fine and then started loosing stitches. Any stitches beyond the simple knit and purl baffle me. Love these patterns and hope they never stop. There is a lot of time, talent, and hard work put into this for us. I do appreciate that and will keep trying. Thank you.

    I am thoroughly perplexed by this one…I still see a long pool with possibly a slide , and a deck chair, or diving board..(perhaps this is “wishful thinking” because of the hot days we have currently had)…or how about a pail and shovel at the seashore…(wild guess)…”stumped”!

    If you turn it on it’s side, it looks like the US flag to me! Not sure what the donut underneath is!

    Dear Claire, I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had with this. I’ve just discovered your KAL, and I must thank you for taking the time, creating such a fun pattern. I think Sara’s right! You have me hooked! I’m yours!

    An apple or cherry tree with a tire swing hanging from it.

    Still can, t figure this ugly work of mind I have knitted over 50 dishcloths patterns from this site and I must say that last month and this month are not by long shot my favorite one and I have yet seen a tree anywhere looking like this one lol be glad went this cloth is done and wondering if I should waste more yarn for the august one sorry if I am rude but it is what it is

    Fran, I’m sorry you’re feeling so frustrated over this dishcloth. Some months, I can’t see the patterns develop, and it is frustrating.
    This month, once I saw the tree and the tire swing, I have loved it! Have you tried turning the cloth sideways, just rotate it 90 degrees clockwise. It looks like only the left side of the tree will be showing, and the tree trunk may be part of the right border.
    I have so enjoyed this cloth… it’s been a happy one! I think I’ve like this one the best of the past 8 months.

    I think it is a pool full of people with waterslides off to the upper right and a kiddie pool off to the lower right.

    OK so I am slow on the draw and finally see the tree and the swing. I so enjoy doing these clothes each month and want to thank you for posting them. It brings a lot of people together having fun doing what they love. And for most of us it is first thing in the morning with our first cup of coffee, tea or whatever we enjoy.
    Thank you again.

    I am still thinking apple tree with a tire swing. The puzzle for me is the tree will be unbalanced as we have only 4 days left. This has been fun and I enjoy reading the comments. Thanks!

    Fran…don’t lost faith..this is why it’s called a Riddle..you are a participant and just like all of us some are stumped while others can vision something. The fun of it is trying each day to see if you can figure it out, and perhaps learn a new stitch in the process…don’t lose sight of what the name implies..a riddle…plus you get to keep it or give it away…Hang in there…

    Congrats to Sara for winning this month. The yarn is gorgeous. Glad this dish cloth is done. I did not like the bobbles….but I at least succeeded in doing a different stitch. 🙂 Looking forward to next months pattern…hopefully without bobbles.

    Congratulations, Sara! Maybe you will let us know what you decide to make with the yarn? It really is pretty.

    I am happy I learned a new stitch; but, I confess I am ready to move on from bobbles. I am looking forward to August, Claire!

    beautiful – been away for about a week and a half and now all the clues and guesses are in – I love it – I’ll have to catch up on the knitting and get ready for next month and the start of kindergarten for my oldest.

    Congrats Sara! you saw through their sideways trick so early!
