"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.
