Sinkmates for Swap
Sinkmates by Lorilee Beltman
Annual Dishcloth Swap
Needles & yarn
US 7 - 4.5 mm
US 9 - 5.5 mm
Knit Picks Dishie Solids

Used US9s for the I-cord and US7 for the body. Very straightforward.

I loved the striped ones while knitting, but then they ended up like the dishcloth version of an 80s polo shirt! On the striped ones, I did two ridges of each color, and carried the yarn on the edge. I still slipped the stitches for the edging.

They didn’t quite keep a square shape, even after blocking. They really want to be closer to diamonds.

The last picture is of the lovely cloths I received in return from the swap! Thanks to reccalynn70, Kathy5333, sybilr, rebby and umqasim!
