Circle Cloth Pattern

My Circle Cloth was inspired by Anne Campbell's Circle Socks. With a little adapting I converted the knitted in the round pattern to a flat knit and changed the stitch counts a bit to make it work with a heavier gauge cotton yarn as opposed to the thin weight sock yarn. (In my research I found that the original stitch pattern "Hexagon" can be found in Barbara Walker's ," A Treasury of Knitting Patterns", page 67.)

Any problems or questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

9/2o/08 Errata: Thanks to a couple of knitters on ravelry...another problem with the pattern has been found. You should repeat the last 20 rows (3-22) instead of repeating the 22 rows. The pattern has been corrected. Once again I'm very sorry for any confusion or inconvenience.

9/18/08 Errata: Please note that on the knit rows slip with yarn in back and on the purl rows slip with the yarn in front. I have corrected the pattern. Sorry for any inconvenience or confusion.




Look at what came in the mail yesterday!

My prize winnings from Becky. I was so surprised to find out that I won another blog prize. I sure have been on a lucky streak lately. Check out "Far & Wide", the gorgeous handspun, handpainted sock yarn from Fat Cat Knits. It's so soft and I'm especially thrilled that I don't have to wind it, since I don't own one of those ball winders that makes the pretty yarn cakes. Becky also included some yummy dark chocolate and vanilla. I LOVE both dark chocolate and vanilla. Also include were these little note cards wrapped in a bow. Thank you so much Becky :) You really made my day!!

Happy Knitting :)

  1. Oh, yes!! The dishcloth pattern!! Now I can get some finished before my youngest comes for a visit in October. She will just love these, and she always takes some home for her friends!! Thank you!! Now I just have to get my printer to work--it's on a "sputtering" kick lately!

    And yes, you are on a lucky streak. What wonderful prizes!! Dark chocolate--yummy, yummy--my very favorite!

  8. Thank you for sharing your pattern!
    I'm still marveling over how cushy they look.

    Love that yarn! I don't have a ball winder, either. Ghiradelli Dark is a staple at my house. Goodman insists I have it at all times. Smart man.
    Have a great weekend!

  12. Love the cloth but I'm having trouble getting the right look. Do I move the yarn back and forth while slipping 2 or keep it always front or back? Thanks

  13. Karen,

    I'm so sorry...I should have put that in the pattern. On the knit rows, slip with the yarn in back and on the purl rows, slip with the yarn in front. I hope this helps.

    Any more questions (or problems)...please let me know :)

  14. That dishcloth pattern really is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the pattern. :)

  15. Love the circle cloth pattern. But I think the number of rows is wrong. I think it should be only 20 rows. When I did 22 rows, I had too many garter-stitch rows in the second section of color A.

    I posted a note on Ravelry to you as well.
    Thanks for a great pattern.

  16. You've managed to outdo yourself again! Those cloths look scrumptious!

  17. Ursula,
    OOPS…I am so sorry…you are so right! I’m terrible at this pattern writing stuff. I think I’m just too close to it if you know what I mean???
    If I ever write up another pattern I think I should have test knitters try it first :)

    I’ll make that correction pronto!!

    I’ll make it read - repeat the last twenty rows. I cast on with the long tail cast on so the cast on counts as the first knit row. Guess I should clarify that as well.

    Thank you so much for notifying me. Another person on ravelry was having the same trouble (got to love ravelry) . I find it very exciting that you guys loved the pattern so much that you got right to it!! Good luck …and happy knitting :)
    Thanks again so much :)
    Deb

  23. You've done it again. Those are some nice clothes, and I bet the texture has some good scrubbing power.

    Thank you for commenting about my upcoming job. I hope it works out well, too :)

  30. Oh, I'm so glad you liked the package and the yarn! Your circle cloths are so pretty. I've never been a dishcloth knitter, but these may just change my mind. :) Hope you're having a great week so far!

  31. Just beautiful. These are some my FAV's on Ravelry.

  32. I have seen these type washcloths on the internet but because of you I decided to try one. I feel so excited as I am almost done, though I have knitted for years and even design knitting patterns for infants I didn't want to put a bunch of cable work into a washcloth. Well who to know there is no cable working. I AM THRILLED!! So I owe you a huge thank you!!! Beautiful and so easy, easy, easy to make!! With my time of 4 kids, running a charity and other things in life this tops the cake!

  34. I made my grandmother a set of these lovely cloths for Christmas, and now she wants me to make her a bedspread in this pattern! Any suggestions for converting this pattern into something that could be a manageable bedspread pattern for a beginner knitter like myself?
