I have to wonder if anyone has tried to do a dish towel to match the dish cloths you all are making? It would just be a matter of keeping on going once you get the pattern in place. It would need to be longer so that the pattern would show when the towel was folded over the towel rack.
It could be a nice gift set with a dish cloth.

We have mentioned dish (tea) towels somewhere. I think Erin made some

It really is not a difficult process.

nony, do you use the same cotton yarn for the dish towels? I just thought a matching set would be a nice project, yes easy, but pretty.

I make them all the time, using the same cotton. I think it was also in the pattern section, of KH, for the hand towel that can hang on the cabinet handle. Both DS and DD requested them for Christmas.

Same for me...same cotton and a variety of patterns. We like the one to hook on the cabinet or refrigerator, too

Interesting, the hanging one. I was thinking of a traditional square cornered towel tho. One with a matching dish washing cloth.
Now I am wondering if there is a toughish yarn that will act as a scrubbie that I could double into the dish washing cloth along with the dish towel's yarn? Perhaps in white or clear . . .

I am sure there is a yarn like you mentioned. There are also patterns to make scrubbies.

Wow, Thanks nony, one even speaks to using a netting ribbon for yarn, a perfect mild abrasive Very Happy. My spring project is set. Still working on the scarf for my SIL, it needs to be closed (tube like) and fringed. I'll have it ready for Christmas n wrapped, I hope.

Well, I finished two wash cloths, I framed moss stitch in just a 3/4 inch knit border. I used double yarn and thinny needles to keep it thick and bulky. They came out nice. I like a bit of texture on my wash cloths so the moss stitch was perfect. Then I did two dish towles, one has three pearled hearts (freehand stitching, no pattern, just did it by eye)) lined up side by side across the bottom half. It came out nice, the hearts just touch at their widest point. The other one is tailored wtih a decorative stripe down the middle but in the same yarn. I suppose I could have done them the same but that, for me, would be boring. (do I have ADHD, perhaps, LOL)

I finally got round to posting picts;



and detail of the hearts;



ETA, OK so the hearts do not photograph very well, it might have something to do witht he flash, it tends to flatten stuff out. What a shame it does not work in portraits that way, LOL. (re; wrinkles, age lines)

I am so sorry, my picts were lost when my computer went down. Sad
