I saw on two different blogs references to a pattern for a Garterlac Dishcloth. I immediately knitted up one dishcloth in a varigated yarn by Sugar & Cream called "Swimming Pool." I've always wanted to learn how to knit entrelac. This is all knitted in garter stitch. I love this pattern and can see playing with it to make a poncho one day. Next, I played with the pattern a little by adding a few stiches to make it bigger and I also used 2 colors instead of just one. Yarn for this cloth is Sugar & Cream "Summer Splash" and "Hot Green." I much prefer the first Garterlac dishcloth to this 2 colored one.
I've joined Monthly Dishcloth KAL. They have 2 dishcloth knit alongs a month. I completed the mid-July dishcloth here which is kind of like lace. I prefer their mid-month KAL which involve some type of knit pattern. The beginning of the Month KAL involves knitting a picture of something (like dolphin, heart, etc..).
