Cotton dish cloths: a Slow Stitching, Make Nine finish

Since discovering the Dishcloth Knit-along issued by Modern Daily Knitting at the end of July, I was enticed to retrieve needles, hooks and cotton yarns to join in and make a few dish cloths.

One crocheted and one knitted dishcloth.

Fun, summer stitching

Using a small amount of a cotton yarn, a dishcloth is a cool, easy, summer knit, that is functional as well as fun to make. During the month of August, I sourced my personal yarn stash for half balls and left-over cottons and knitted and crocheted 6 of them… with another dish cloth WIP on the needles. 

Three handmade dish cloths: two knitted and one crocheted (center).

As I work through odds and ends of cotton yarns, there will no doubt be a few more dish cloths made by year’s end. It's been fun finding and practicing different stitch patterns for making them. The fact that I'm using up leftovers is also an appealing benefit.

A variety of cotton yarns from my stash.

My 7th Make Nine Finish

I’m counting these hand stitching projects as fulfillment of my Make Nine 2022 Slow Stitching prompt.

This makes 7 of 9 Make Nine projects completed for 2022. I feel I’m in good shape!
