Knitted Dishrags

I have been for the past few months knitting dishrags off and on. Now I have been trying out new patterns  and have found ones I like and a couple that I did not.

These are some dishrags I have made from a pattern I have been knitting for a long time. They are very easy to make and are quicker than most. I was at an event where someone had a booth selling handmade items and she had these dishrags. I could not believe how much she was selling them for, only 1 dollar. That might be what the yarn might of cost but she did not take into account her labor. I thought it was too cheap. I did not buy any because I have so much of that yarn I need to use up, but it would of save me some time.
Here is the pattern for these dishrags;
Cotton yarn (Sugar and Spice) and size 9 needles
Cast on 4 stitches
1st row; K2, yo, K2
Next row; K2, yo, Knit rest of stitches.  You will do this row each time and will be increasing. Increase until you have 50 stitches
Now K1, K2 tog, yo, K2 tog, k rest of row.
Continue until 4 stitches remain, bind off.

These dishrags I liked a lot, found the pattern for the blue one on Ravelry. It is a great site for finding patterns that both free and ones you'll have to pay for.
  I found the pattern for the yellow one on the Sugar and Spice label that comes on the skeins. 

Now these I did not like, too big, and  if I were to do them again I would use a smaller needle and not make as many rows.
I plan on using all of these dishrags as part of some kitchen sets I'm giving away for Christmas.
When I get all the different items made that  I plan on putting in the set, I'll post them with pictures. I had done something like this a while back, so it time to do it again.

Till next time

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
