One of my favorite knitting projects is dishcloths/wash cloths. Everyone can use them. They are great for wiping up spills, dusting, washing faces, etc.
When I saw this pattern by Very Pink Knits I broke down and purchased it. (Normally I just knit from free patterns.) I have been following the pattern as written and have made two so far.
There are directions for dishcloths and for coasters. Since we have only two cork coasters, I decided to make coasters.
The first coaster was made with US size 6 needles. It was way larger than coaster size, but perfect for a small wipe-up cloth. Next I used US size 5 needles (and the same yarn), which are what the pattern actually calls for. This also was too large for a coaster, but fine for a smaller wipe-up cloth.
Next I will use US size 4 needles and see what I get. If that does not work, I will decrease the number of stitches that I cast on.
