I just uploaded my first pattern to my Ravelry store. It is just a simple knitted washcloth that I made for my guest bath, but more will be coming!! It has a Seed Stitch border that is three stitches wide. The design is a combination of knit and purl stitches. I used Peaches and Creme 100% cotton yarn, but any other worsted weight 100% cotton would work. Cotton is best for dishcloths or washcloths, but if you use these patterns for other projects, you can use any yarn. I am working on some ideas for designs using knitted squares and will be adding them here.
The pattern includes written instructions and a chart and can be downloaded from the Ravelry web site for $2.00. You do not have to be a member to purchase patterns. Click on the 'Buy Now' button below and your purchase can be completed online.
Things are finally looking up around here. I had to take a little break for family and medical reasons, but am now getting back into full swing on crafting. Sadly, gardening will have to wait. I'm not tackling any new projects outside due to having a little rotator cuff problem that has one arm kinda out of commission. It is hard to shovel, rake, dig, etc with only one arm. But knitting, sewing, crocheting, etc are doing just fine-for the most part.
I have a new project in mind--how many things can I make from simple, beginner-level, knitted squares. As I get those patterns finished, I will be publishing them here and on Ravelry and maybe, eventually, on Etsy. I am working in that direction. I also got some new pattern design software, which I will review here when I get a better hang on using it. So far, it seems promising and multipurpose--knitting, cross stitch--anything that can be laid out in a chart.
