When I couldn’t find the perfect wall clock anywhere, I decided to knit my own! Thank you to all of the Ravelers who requested this pattern – here you go! Yes, this clock really works! It’s made using a clock movement from Michael’s craft store. You need three colors of scrap sock yarn and some nail polish or paint to paint the clock hands. The numbers are duplicate-stitched on, and you don’t have to weave in ANY ends.
A super-soft washcloth with an optional crocheted embellishment or monogram.
This towel is so full and fluffy that it’s actually luscious. It’s adapted from the Ubiquitous Dishcloth and will make for a slightly more interesting challenge.
To get the rectangle effect, you start increasing just as with the Ubiquitous Dishcloth. Then, you alternate an increase row with a decrease row until the towel is as long as you want. Then it’s decrease rows all the way home to make the edges come to a point.
Add an optional crocheted edging and loop to hang the towel from.
Dishcloth: This is a traditional pattern whose designer is unknown. I call it the Ubiquitous Dishcloth because almost every book and class teaches this dishcloth to its new knitters, and for good reason. It’s quick, cheap, and teaches you what you need to know so that you can move on to harder and more interesting projects.
Add an optional crocheted edging and loop to hang the dishcloth from.
