I've been wanting to share some of my patterns on my blog, but have been waiting to figure out how to share them in a pdf file. Well, I've not figured that out yet and just decided to post it straight on the blog. I also need some photography lessons, so that I can get a better picture of this dishcloth.

I've been working on Halloween dishcloths and wanted a skull and crossbones. So Monday I wrote the pattern and then knitted it up. I'm pleased to share this with everyone who's interested.

A pdf of this pattern can be found here.

Thanks for sharing this! It's the perfect cloth for my daughter who loves pirate things and Halloween!

ReplyDeleteGreat work! The details are awesome.

ReplyDeleteThanks so much for sharing. I was wondering if this pattern is wrote for left handed knitters or right handed knitters? I am right handed and didnt know if i had to reverse something lol. Thanks again.

ReplyDeletethanks for sharing the pattern.

ReplyDeleteJeanie,

ReplyDeleteThis pattern is symmetrical left to right, so this one is right or left handed. Just follow as written and enjoy!

I came for the Skull and Crossbones pattern - thank you very much - but I stayed for the feather and fan baby's hat.

ReplyDeleteThank you very much for the both patterns.

Happy knitting,

Janey
