Dish Cloth Leaves

CLABBERS's picture

I found this pattern on one of the free pattern sites and though you all might like to see it. I'll be taking them down to FL in a couple weeks for dear old mom. They are made with Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn. They are fun to make and I get two done in one evening.

I am including the pattern as well. I think these make nice little gifts for those who open their homes to me when I travel.

Enjoy!

Beautiful. These leaves

Beautiful. These leaves could also be used to make a version of Princess Tiana's dress from the Princess and the Frog. Had I seen the pattern last year I would have done just that for my daughter's costume.

Hi Greg...I did put these

Hi Greg...I did put these side by side, top to bottom, kind of like a tessellation and I think with a bit of creative grafting, the could be put together into a larger project. If you make something out of them, let me know!

Hi Sid...these are kind of fun because the "grow" so fast. Also, people haven't ever seen some this shape before. I'm glad that you like them enough to make a few. Have fun!

If I can make it to Denver, I'll probably bring the yarn an knit up a few while there. I'll bring copies of the pattern as well.

Thank you for sharing. I may bring this with me to the Men's Knitting Retreat in NY this weekend as a project to work on to fill spare time.

I've never been before so I didn't know what to expect. Unfortunately, due to my mother suddenly needing to be hospitalized and being gravely ill, I was unable to go to MSKR in NY as I had planned. However, I do have this pattern and the yarn with me and I have been able to work on making these while sitting around ICU waiting rooms. Thankfully, they're a very easy and simple knit and are good at keeping my mind from wandering and dwelling on dark and sad thoughts while my mother fights for her life.

Many prayers coming your way

Many prayers coming your way for both your mom and you. I know how tough it can be. I lost my dad 4 years ago and it was difficult. I hadn't rediscovered knitting at that time, so there was a lot of mindless TV watching and reading as I basically lived in hospice for a few days.

Have to try this out---I like the look of these. My other half likes the octagonal ones I make him---will try this out on him. Or else I could just knit a tree---seriously----need a large hanging for the front porch and this gives me good ideas for it elements.
