That's lovely. Such a beautiful thing that took only two days. That's why we love dishcloths! Very Happy

Oh Katknit....that's the one I tried last year and I could not get the center to close up until Joy had to explain the directions to me....I felt so silly. I had dish cloth block!

The Lacy Round Dishcloth is amazing looking isn't it? Really fun to knit and it looks so complicated, yet it's not Cool

I was just wondering if I could adapt this pattern to knit on a finer yarn!
I was thinking of using a vintage 2ply or 4ply.
Would I just use the appropriate needles to the yarn but still keep the same amount of stitches as the cast on?
I was thinking it would make a nice vintage table mat Smile

I would think that you'd have to increase the number of stitches to keep the same size piece in a finer yarn...

That's a great idea Katknit. I once fiddled with the idea of using more stitches and bigger yarn and turning this pattern into a baby blanket. It seems to be a very adaptable pattern.

Now I want to knit it but have so many other things half done.
Have definately bookmarked this one Smile

Sorry Kath! Laughing ( see I'm not sorry at all!!!!!!!)

I thought it would be up your street somehow Very Happy

Actually, I know a couple of people who have made this, including Ygymraes here, and it seems to be a relatively quick knit.

That is so pretty. I can see that it would go pretty quickly on size 10 needles. Hmm.... Laughing
