As I wrote in my July post, I’ve been working my way through my stash of cotton dishcloth yarn. I’ve knit more than 20 dishcloths using my version of the Sinkmates cloth and attached them to bottles of dish detergent. I made my third trip to the local food pantry last week with 10 of them.
I still have lots of cotton yarn to use so I’ll be knitting more. Here’s the dishcloths before I folded and attached them to the detergent bottles.
I also wanted to use some of my cotton to make the Soap Sacks that I wrote about HERE. I decided to design a new pattern for them. you can find it in my Ravelry Shop or on the Soap Sack website.
The pattern is simple to knit and is ideal for a beginner. If you’re teaching someone to knit, this is a great first project. There’s 2 versions, one is plain garter stitch and the other has a few purl rows to add some interest. Both are knit flat and then seamed to make the sack. The hanger can be made with an i-cord or a crocheted chain. The finished size is 4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. This is a FREE pattern.
I’ve been working on lots of other projects, too. I continue to knit hats and I’m working on some new designs including this Basketweave Hat that I recently released.
The pattern is available HERE. Use the code BLOG to receive 30% off this pattern through September 30, 2020.
Hope you’re well and enjoying the last of the warm weather. It will be time for hats before we know it.
One thought on “New Knitting Patterns Released”
I LOVE your soap sacks. I put my small pieces of soap in these so it keeps them better and uses it as a washcloth that already has the soap on it. Then my small ends of soap are not just withered away. I have made several of these and included a bar of soap with them and the recipient really liked them. These are simple to make! Thanks for sharing the FREE pattern!
