|These are my dishrags that have been washed and dried for a few months now...there's some fuzzies on them but they are presentable unlike my other "white" rags.|
|These are Chelsey's pot holders and dish rag, I love the colors. They definitely look like they belong to a young lady!!|
|The potholders are two layers of crocheted yarn so they are pretty effective for keeping the heat away from your hands.|
If you wanna give the dish rag a try, below is the pattern I use, it's passed down from a friend who doesn't know where the pattern came from she's had it memorized for so long, neither one of us is claiming ownership of the pattern, we're just sharing it!
Knitted Dish Rag Directions
Yarn 1 skein of Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn. If you buy the smaller skeins, 2 oz, you'll get one and a lil more dish rag out of it. If you use the bigger skein you can get two dish rags.
Needles size 7 10 inch, gauge isn't important
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1 K1 row
Row 2 K2 YO into end of row
Repeat row2 until there are stitches the entire length of your needle, you will have 1/2 of the dish rag knitted on a diagonal.
Then you start decreasing:
K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, K to end of row. Repeat until 4 stitches left on needles, cast off.
That's it! It takes me about 1 1/2 hours or so to make one. They are good to take to work on when you'll be waiting somewhere for a long time since it isn't a lot of supplies to carry and it's lightweight.
Now go make one!! I'd love to hear how it turns out!
Go make something!
