What better way to say, "I love you," than to give a special person in your life a heart dishcloth. Penny of aloomyplace.com converted this pattern. Her website is no longer available, so I will post the pattern in this post. I did this one on Penny's 1/4" fine gauge rake using 100% cotton Sugar 'n Creme. Part way into looming this dishcloth, you can see where I switched to Isela's new knit stitch. I like this stitch much better than the flat "U" stitch. The new knit stitch looks more uniform like needle knitting. Isela's mini-movie of the stitch can be found here.
Looming dishcloths seems to be the craze lately, and I'm hooked as well. I just love watching the pattern appear as I'm looming. Cathy of Loomin Cat's Haven has been converting many needle-knit dishcloths over to the loom. Her husband also makes a dishcloth rake with a gauge that you can loom the perfect dishcloth on.
