Knitting is an essential part of my daily routine and when I sew, I totally lose track of time. I enjoy the creative process as much as the finished product. My style might be described as vintage but I refer to it as classic.
My knitting pattern designs include household items such as the Dress Style Dishcloths, baby blankets and hats, and doll clothes for various sized dolls
I began working with yarn and fabric as a young child. I watched and learned the basics from my mother and aunts as they created clothing and household items by knitting, crocheting, and sewing. My first projects were potholders made on a weaving loom with circular loops, a loom that I still use after 50 plus years. I progressed to a knitting knob and made miles of i-cord, sewing it into mats and accessories for my dolls. Shortly after I began sewing aprons and continued on to sewing clothing for myself and my family members. For several years, I served as the costume designer for local high school musical productions including the King & I. Whenever the opportunity arises, I teach both children and adults to knit and/or sew.
Developing Knit n Sew Studio has allowed me to share my passion for all things hand stitched.
Every kitchen needs a handy dish towel. This hanging dish towel uses a full dish towel folded in half. The topper is added to the center fold and knit. There are 28 stitches and it takes about an hour to complete.
Not only is this a great addition to your kitchen but it will be a nice hostess gift or make several for your next craft fair. I've made different towels for the holidays, too.
I designed this several years ago because all the patterns that I found were for crochet toppers. I enjoy knitting and this simple pattern has a good texture to the stitch pattern.
Pattern includes written directions and photos illustrating the how to of attaching the yarn to the towel for your first row of knit stitches
