here are the 2 cloths that I have finished so far:



I did the Open Star one and the Feather and Fan one from the OP....  both done in Bernat Handicrafter cotton....

there are a couple of mistakes in the open star one but they are not glaring ones and I doubt anyone will notice anyway - but it did turn out a bit small for what I like......

Tajhia, your cloths look great!  Here's one that I've made (the Yvonne's Double Flower Cloth from WitchCatXteen's list):



This pic shows the yarn color better:


It's bigger than I thought it would be, about 7.5" in diameter.  It was my first Magic Loop project, and I definitely recommend ML over DPNs because there are 128 stitches on the last row (and I've got a hard enough time keeping stitches on DPNs...)

Tajhia, very lovely.  And they're not mistakes, just your own personal knitted signature! Wink

Spaghetti, nice job, too! 

I haven't learned ML yet, having only just learned 2 circ needle knitting (my first project is a pair of socks).  I don't think I shall ever go back to dpns again! Smiley

I posted some completed dishcoths in completed projects and gizmonic linked to this ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=184126.msg1920883;topicseen#msg1920883 ).  I'm in late, but I'm definitely in.  I am working on the Darrell Waltrip one right now.  I am using Sugar n' Cream Faded Denim.  I don't think it works so well for this pattern, but I'm sticking with it.

I don't block my dishcloths.  They tend to look a little wonky, especially where I start knitting, but it doesn't bother me.  I have given all my dishcloths away so far and have yet to make one for myself (though it is in the plans).  For that reason I always washed them before giving them.  I want to make sure they are clean when given (guilty as charged of occasionally eating chips while knitting).

Thanks for this kal.

Okay you Yodas of knitting...I have a couple questions.

1) What is ML and DPN? I knit on "regular" straight needles and I own a pair of circulars. Are those DPN's?

2)I know how to slip a stitch, but I don't understand what it means to do it knit wise or purl wise. I saw this thread, loved the stitch pattern, read it & got all confused! Here's the link:

Thanks for all the help ladies! I really appreciate it and I am learning loads!!

Hi, to slip a stitch knitwise, you put the right needle through the back of the next stitch on the left needle as if you were going to Knit. Don't actually make a stitch, just 'slip' it off the left needle onto the right one.
To slip purlwise you do the same, but put the needle into the front of the stitch as if you were going to Purl.

I hope I've explained this right and good luck with the pattern. (PS I'm a righty so I've explained it as such, if you're a lefty this will all be backwards!)

Yessss, question you must ask... /yoda voice Smiley

ML is Magic Loop.  It's another method of knitting in the round, using one long circular needle instead of using DPNs (double pointed needles). 

Hope that helps! Smiley

Ahh I see I see! Thank you very much!

Zero Cool- I thought that's what it meant to slip stitch knit wise or purl wise, but I thought "that's way too easy, there's got to be a catch." I will have to try out that pattern because I just don't see how doing that knit wise or purl wise would make that much of a difference. I'm sorry if my ugly beginner knitter's wart is starting to show.  Cheesy

gizmonic- Thank you for clearing that up for me. I've never knit in the round or with DPN's, but I do know what you mean. I would love to knit a pair of socks, but I am so scared of DPN's (haha like that new word usage yet again  Wink). Hopefully soon I will muster up the courage to try something outside of my comfort zone. Until then, I will stick to washcloths.
