O Dishcloth

July 29th, 2010 · 1 Comment · knitting, patterns

I’ve written and test knit two monogram dishcloth patterns this week, and this is the first one– O.  This was the first time I had to get curves in my design, so I was a little concerned the O would be too boxy.  My first effort turned out a little wonky with the O looking like it had handles like a coffee cup.  I reworked it, and now I’m satisfied with this O.  I hope you enjoy knitting it for the Os in your life!

Supplies:

  • 1 ball of kitchen cotton (I used Peaches & Creme 4 Ply Worsted Weight.)
  • Size US 7 straight or circular needles

Gauge—Don’t sweat it on this project.  Just match your needle size with your yarn to create a fabric that has a drape you like.

    I have printed off all the letters and put them in a folder. I have looked at other letters but I like the ones you have knitted so much better. I am going to make the dish cloths for christmas. Just please continue to knit them. I also just love George’s bed. I have not been knitting very long so that would be to hard for me. Have a cat that looks just like George. Have a good day. Thanks for all the patterns. Martha
