Over the weekend, I decided to use up some cotton yarn I had left from another project and make a dish towel.
It was a really fast project and super simple utilizing only the Garter stitch (knitting every row).
I used Rico Creative Cotton Aran from loveknitting.com for this project. It’s one of my favourite yarns to work with.
Well, off to start another dish towel. This time I’m going to make one to go with the dish cloth I made the other weekend.
I finally finished my new dish towel and you can find the pattern here!
I added an I-cord edge to the towel to give it a more finished look. Also, this towel has contrasting stripes on both ends.
I really hope you give it a try! It would make the perfect Hostess gift!
Good afternoon everyone!
So I’ve completed all the towels for my co-workers.
I really hope they love using them as much as I love using mine!
If you’d like to make your own dish towel, you can find my pattern here.
I still have to make one more towel using a new pattern I created, but since I’ve made so many towels lately, I’ve started another project to mix things up a bit.
Here’s a sneak peek.
Once I’m done this project, I’ll be offering the pattern for free so stay tuned! 😀
Well, off to get this finished and the pattern written.
I’ve finished the dish towel for myself, BUT…it didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted it to. For the stripes, I used a light cream cotton and a light grey cotton and I don’t think there’s enough contrast in the colours. I would like to see more contrast.
Sooo, I’ll be adjusting the pattern a bit that I wrote and making another towel to showcase it.
I promise once this is done, I’ll share the pattern.
In the meantime, here’s my new towel.
I’ve completed another dish towel.
This is for one of the girls at work. Her kitchen walls are a mustard colour and I was able to find a beautiful mustard coloured cotton yarn by Rico over at loveknitting.com!
I’ve also started another dishtowel for myself. I’ll be writing a pattern for it too, so I’ll let you know when it’s available!
Well off to finish my dishtowel and get that pattern written.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
Look at all this gorgeous, bright cotton yarn!
Soon to be made into dish towels!
I’ll share them when I’m done!!
I know I haven’t posted anything in over a week, but I’m still working on knitting projects.
A grey and cream dish towel for a co-worker.
And a pair or teal and spice fingerless gloves.
I’ve also been doing some behind the scenes work on my blog.
If you click here, you’ll see what I’ve been up to. 😀 THE “BUY NOW” BUTTONS ARE ACTIVE ON THE PAGES, SO PLEASE DON’T CLICK ON THEM. Not unless you want to purchase something that is!! LOL!
I’m so excited that I’ll be offering products for sale this year!
Now off to take some photos and to finish up at least one of my many half done projects!
I’m finished the second dish towel in my set.
I used the same colours as in my first towel, but reversed them.
I didn’t have enough of the dark brown cotton yarn left to make a full third stripe, so I just knit 2 rows instead of the eight that the pattern calls for. I still really like how it turned out.
For these towels, I used Rico Creative Cotton yarn available over at loveknitting.com. It’s easy to work with and washes up beautifully!
Off to make more dish towels, but this time for the girls at work!
So my order of yarn finally arrived the other day from loveknitting.com and I was able to finish my dish towel I was making!
I have already used it and now it’s my absolute favourite!
And of course I’ve started a second one to make a set! 😀
It’s so super easy you should make one too! Click here for the pattern!
Yes, I’m still working on the second cushion for my co-worker’s wedding present, BUT yesterday I received my order from loveknitting.com and just had to start the project I purchased the yarn for! LOL!
I’ve never knit with cotton before but wanted to give it a try and make some new dish towels for my kitchen. So far, I really like working with the cotton.
Here’s a sneak peek of my soon to be dish towel.
I’m using “Rico Creative Cotton Aran”.
Well, off to finish the dish towel and the cushion.
I’ll post pictures of both when I’m done.
