Yep, just finished one kitchen swap & onto another! This one is for DISHCLOTHS or WASHCLOTHS or SPA-CLOTHS or DISHRAGS, whatever you want to call them & however you want to use them!
Last year (2011) I sent in 2 sets, just because I went on a little kitchen making spree.
I have a thing for hangloops, either built in or add on after. Top cloths are a Japanese doily pattern with just a simple crochet lace trim added on as a cheery bright hangloop & the bottom cloths were made using a free pattern called diamond dishcloth by TKroCrafts & they have a built in hanghole!
I have always appreciated beautifully useful items and for me, a hand knit or crocheted dishcloth embodies that simplicity. It’s useful, has purpose & at the same time can be outrageously pretty, fun or unusual. It doesn’t have to be the traditional square or round shape, I can have it in whatever colors I am in love with at the time. It’s eco friendly, strong & reusable, I can gift something that everyone will use. Even better, I make it with my 2 hands in an afternoon of delight, perfect!
Again there is a Ravelry forum full of fun chatter, pattern inspiration & photos for this swap right here.
