This is beautiful! Not only can this be a dishcloth, it can also double as a doily. Thank you for all of these patterns. (^_^)
thanks i see that they are at 360 sad we are gonna lose our fun pattern source… hugs me
I see the last row has picot stitches. However, there is nothing in the pattern itself showing WHICH picot stitch we are to use. After crocheting for a number (we won’t discuss this number)of years, I know there are several different ways to make a picot stitch. So are we to use whichever one we are most comfortable making?
I have a round dining table and this little “washcloth” is about to become some placemats for my table !!!! It’s a delightful little snowflake. Thank you for sharing it with us, Helen; and you, Maggie, for choosing to publish it.
I have so thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of these “washcloths”; although I must I admit I have not made one “washcloth” !! They all seem to end up becoming something else. Again, thanks for all the fun we’ve had this past year. I can’t wait to see what you have planned for us this coming year.
Anticipation of looking to see what you have for us each day is remarkable. Thanks.
And, I have enjoyed all the different designs. This part of things will be missed. But, can’t wait to see what you have planned next. thanks for sharing. I’ve made some of them to share with friends and family, and they all LOVE them too. Just can’t beat a good Crocheted Dishcloth.
I just want to thank all the people that have submitted patterns for the website… I have enjoyed all the patterns so far and I intend to make a lot of them this winter while I am off work…You are very talented women to come up with all these patterns… just wanted to let you all know that i appreciate the effort on your part to supply all of us with your patterns… thanks again Ladies and a special thanks to Maggie for publishing them all to the web…Patty
I’m just curious…. Isn’t this dishcloth photographed wrong side up?
I am working on the snowflake dishcloth which I think is beautiful, but I have run into a problem on row 7. The pattern calls for dc, ch 1, 4 time in the same space and then 1 dc in the same space. Is this correct or am I just making it hard? Thanks for your help. Doris
Doris I see that this hasn’t been answered yet so thought I would while I was here. It’s written that way just to keep the directions from being so wordy (dc,ch 1, dc, ch 1,
dc, ch1, dc, ch 1, dc all in the same space) and to show that you only do a ch 1 after the 1st 4 dc and not after the last (5th) one. So yes, it’s written right and you will wind up with 5 dc in that space but only 4 ch 1 spaces. I hope I typed this so it is understandable.
Thanks for the help.. I just waned to be sure that I was on the same page as everyone else. Doris
