Rosie wishes you *Happy Easter* !
I've been thinking *spring* -
and walking thru my gardens to see what is blooming, tho the weather is still cold [34 today!] -
my Pussy Willows have been blooming beautifully tho!
So this month's challenge is a cloth that made me think of pussy-willows: a Cat Face!
Now, you do not have to make the face on it! - in fact, I did mine in one of my favorite variegated colored yarns - the pattern makes a very nice round dishcloth.
The challenge this month: knitting in the round!
If you haven't done this type of knitting before, I hope you'll give it a try.
You can use double pt needles - or the very easy method using magic loop. The internet is full of this way to knit in the round. Also many books include it now, which you can find at your library.
Have fun with it!
And let us know if you make a cat face, be sure to post your photo at your yahoo album for us all to see!
You will need:
#5 dbl pts needles OR #5 circular needle
[I used a #6, as the cotton yarn I used is thicker and it went smoother than with a #5]
1 skein cotton yarn, color of your choice
small amount of black yarn [for cat's face and ears]
Cloth size: 7.5 inches across
Cat Face Dishcloth Pattern:
Happy knitting : )
