Checker-Square Garter Dishcloth… Continued!
I shared my Checker-Square Garter Dishcloth pattern with Ravelry readers and now I can be inspired by other people’s finished projects.
Patty7737 made a matching set by reversing the color choices. You can make a dishcloth set like Patty’s by making one dishcloth as the pattern is written and one dishcloth reversing the color instructions.
Ravelry has groups that you can join according to your interests. One such group is Dishcloths R Us which has featured this dishcloth as their September Knit-along. What a fun community!
Tina, from the Yahoo group Love2Knit_Dishclothes also moderated a knit-along featuring this pattern. She sent me a picture of her finished project to share with you.
As you can see, Tina chose to add a topper on her dishcloth and use it as a towel. There have been several Ravelry users as well as blog readers who would like to use the pattern to make a towel as well. Tina sent me this advice:
“In case you were wondering, I used this pattern for the top portion. Starting at the “Make the Top” section. It calls for 50 stitches, so I just K2tog along the first row I knitted.”
It makes me feel great to see all of the projects that people have made with a pattern that I wrote. It inspires me to keep designing patterns- and giving them away for free. It is especially nice for me, not knowing very many “real life” knitters, to be involved in this great online community.
