Knit A Long - KAL
In Januarary 2007 I joined the international group called"Monthly Dishcloths".
Read about the group and join if you like it!
There will be 2 cloths a month, the first lines of the pattern will be sent on 1st of
and some lines on the following 6-7 days.
So I knitted my very first dishcloth
(in this KAL) during the first 6 days of February 2007.
I followed the pattern very carefully - and here it is.
But I HAD to try to realize an idea I got while I knitted this cloth
|First of all I wanted
to make the sides as
somebody in the group suggested
(sorry, but I don't remember who).
But my idea was to create hearts also on the backside of
It was very easy: on all the even rows you just have to k and not p,
where you knitted p on the row before.
(to those who have got the pattern!
row 5 (that means on the front side):
K7, P1, K9, P1, K9, P1, K7
row 6 (on the back side): p7, k1, p9, k1, p9, k1, p7
and so on)
Here you can see the result.
I don't really know which is the frontside
and which is the backside ...
|I made this cloth
without the border
(I hadn't enough yarn so I'll make a trimming with a contrastcolor -
but what makes this different from this and the second green dishcloth is,
only knitted on row of the very last rows in the heart
(that means 15th row of the first pattern).
This gives the heart
a better shape, I think.
February Mid Dish Cloth
This is the first time I take part of the mid-month cloth.
It started on 16th February and now I've knitted the patterns of three
first days. As you must follow this pattern carefully, I've got an
idea, because the first days I printed out, but onestly I thought it was
a kind of wasting paper.... 6-7 sheets of paper until you've got
the whole pattern.... adding also that I had some difficulty to make out
which row I was knitting
I copied the pattern of today and
pasted it into a new document in my word processor (you can also paste
it into a new e-mail)
I choosed bigger fonts,
*I made an interline at the end of the first row
I had to knit.
I knitted the row reading on the pc.
Then I removed the row.
repeat from * !!!
In this way I finished
the rows in few minutes and I had no problem reading the pattern while
I did it!
