A kitschy little collection of potholders and dishcloths I worked up and sent off to Portland to be part of an art installation charity event led by Larissa Brown in conjunction with her new book – My Grandmother’s Knitting: Family Stories and Inspired Knits from Top Designers.

Pattern: Grandma’s Fan Dishcloth form Larissa’s book.
