Here is a picture of my completed dishcloth.  I finished it and frogged it two or three times before I was even remotely pleased with the result.



cfbandit, you're right, decreasing looks very stepstone.  I remedied it in two ways:  First, I used the transferred stitch as the wrap stitch each time, and I covered it up with a row of single crochet at the end.

That turned out really cute, jenny!

I'm currently struggling my way through finding a 8" x 8" afghan square for an exchange. I've got a new pattern that was emailed to me last night (20 pegs, 27 rows, blue kk), so I'm going to see how that works.

the scarf was made on the purple KK loom - double knit, the sweater was made on a loom I made with my father when I became addicted to loom knitting  Grin

I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

i did the maple leaves in duplicate stitch - embroidering them on.  the first attempt at knitting them right in failed miserably, and this way, they're held in better.  since i was giving this to a three year old, i wanted to make it as strong as possible.  hope that helped!

I'm new to Craftster and was pleased to find info on the KK. Thanks to everyone for pattern links. I've made over 20 magic scarves and 9 hats and was getting bored even though I love using the KK (it's so relaxing). I can't wait to try some new items!

OMG Kibbi there are a lot of things you can make other than scarves and hats darl. I have made bags and shawls and slipper socks,but i really credit the Yahoo groups for all the help ,links and patterns and help i got from them.I got bored pretty quick with scarves and hats myself ,but i am in a much warmer country, so when i make them ,i make them for charity. I belong to an online group who make things for various places in America. Anyway let your imagination run free and design anything you want its not that hard. Lots of KK fanatics have designed dog coats, afghans, dishcloths,bags, purses,wine bottle cozies,wristlets. Go for it the world is your oyster!
