Born and raised in the greater Delaware valley around Philadelphia and New York City, I have lived in Germany and Europe for almost 20 years. I travel with work as an interpreter, consultant and agent, and never leave home without something on my needles to keep me occupied on my trip. I hope you enjoy my patterns as much as I have enjoyed writing them down to share with you.
"These instructions for a heart-shaped washcloth (dishcloth) are not difficult, but do require you to knit and purl into the front and back of a stitch. In addition, you will also need to increase and decrease stitches in the rows."
I consider this pattern to be at an intermediate level.
However, it is quick pattern! Each washcloth takes only 2-3 hours to finish.
My Mother uses all sorts of festive washcloths to wrap gifts, candies and chocolates in--and this is the reason I made this pattern: I needed some special "Gift-Wrapping" for Valentine's Day.
The heart shape is actually quite ideal for making a quick basket to hold candies and chocolates, as you can see in the last picture. The finished item can also be used to decorate a table or as a place setting (Just change the size of your needles).
I do enjoy receiving feedback, so do not hesitate to be in touch, either here or via facebook.
