FO – Handtowel #1

I knit a green sleeve up to the armhole and 45cm of blue sleeve and then I gave up. I couldn’t take it any more. But of course you can’t just do nothing, so I made one of these instead.

Pattern: Cotton Dishcloths from the LionBrand website. I think you might have to join up to access the pattern and all their other free patterns but it is free.

Needle: 3mm hook.

Yarn: Wendy Supreme Luxury Cotton 4-ply. I bought a lot of this with the intention of making a crocheted skirt. However when I got home I realised that not only was it the wrong weight, but that I have also lost the book that the pattern is in. I think I might have lent the book to someone but I’m not sure. If I lent you my Happy Hooker book, could you let me know?!

Anyway, the yarn is really nice to work with – very smooth and soft – and I think I will make a matching set to use up my contrasting colours.

  1. I don’t have *your* Happy Hooker but I do have *a* Happy Hooker which you can borrow if you like. I still haven’t learned to crochet, the shame!

  2. I like the pattern it’s quite similar to ‘soft waves’ by, hm, is it jan eaton? in 200 stripes book? i like that it’s not corners but curves!

  3. This is really nice, I love love it. I must try it out and also do matching wash cloths.
