How sweet! That looks like a project that is just the right size for the car, or for the summer when it's just too hot to be working on a sweater and I'm tired of socks!  Gotta find myself a copy of the magazine or the book in the library for that pattern!

Wow, that is SOOOOO great. I seriously need to learn how to knit. Well. Properly. I still cannot cast on without swearing and require my mom to do it. It's embarassing when you make your mother help you knit. *sigh* Great job! I'm seeing like a million of them in all sizes on a scarf...i like scarves, i think i have too many.

Here was my take on the flower washcloth from "Weekend Knits:"

I like how it turned out, but I'm not sure I'd knit it again actually. I thought it was super fussy (weaving in *all* those ends!). Anyone have any other cute and less fussy washcloth patterns?

I love that yarn for that flower washcloth, Simone.  I wonder about doing a washcloth with a yellow center and red or blue petals.

hi, i just finished one of these washcloths in the cotton chenille and it looks great! i wish i could post a picture but i have no digital camera...or any camera for that matter.  Embarrassed

 i used light green for the petals and white for the center -- using 2 colors worked really well, so i say go for a red/blue/yellow combo!  i'm going to use the rest of the yarn to make one with white petals and a green center, then send 'em to my mom for her birthday to go in her green & white bathroom!

i agree that the knitting and finishing was a little fussy and the cotton chenille has no elasticity and can be uncomfy to knit...probably why i've been putting off starting that second one for my mom....

hi there:

i also made this washcloth from the book and like it a lot - although mine looks a lot more like a starfish than a flower.  here's a picture so you can see what I mean:

It really looks like you weren't doing the increases.  I'm making this right now and the flower is rounding nicely with the increases. I must say that it is hard to remember what row I'm though!

am I doing something wrong when i'm knitting the petals, do you think?  i followed the pattern exactly - maybe I'm slipping those last stitches wrong?  I still dig the cloth - it's super-soft and sooooo nice to wash my face with - but just wondrin'...

I agree about all that weaving, simone!  Try this pattern for a nice non-fussy washcloth:


or this one:

I really like it, since its a shape not just a rectangle or square. Damn nice
