These are Amy Marie Vold’s a/k/a Ravelry’s CornucopiAmy’s Fresh Knit Apple dishcloths. I knit mine in DROPS Paris. Most of my cloths are gifted to friends and family. These made me want to keep a few for myself.
First up is a nice red Delicious Apple.
This one’s a Golden Delicious, I think.
Possibly, a Fuji.
And, here’s a Granny Smith.
These easy slip-stitch cloths are tons of fun to knit. If you’ve not tried this technique before, Vold’s instructions are clear and there are many videos on the web that teach the technique as well. It’s also known as mosaic knitting. Better yet? Have a friend show you, once, and that’s all you’ll need to be off to knit your own.
If not apples, how about a Cloverleaf Cloth?
No? Then move to the animal kingdom for “Some Bunny to Do the Dishes.”
No? Care to try a farmyard animal? Here’s “Pig Pen’s Kitchen and Spa Cloth.”
My Piggy is sort of hiding in the spring grass. But you’ll make a better color choice and your piggy will pop.
Looking for an edgier cloth? “Along Came a Spider” could be just the ticket.
I think this next one is a Brown Recluse.
From edgy to a bit cartoony. The next set is “Window Patrol Cat Coasters.” I’ve got a “Go Blue” Michigan Wolverine colorway going, because that’s all the DK weight I had in my stash at the time and I live in Michigan so it’s forgiven. These cats are definitely eyeing that little yellow birdie.
There are a lot of major and splashy talents in the knitting universe. In the smaller knitting world of dishcloths, Vold stands out.
