There’s a lot of variety in this pattern. You’ll get two smaller dishcloths, which I personally prefer to the larger ones, a regular sized circular dishcloth, and a scrubbie.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I was working for the Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp at Indiana University when one day one of my fellow counselors wore a hat like this. After shamelessly starring at his head all day, I decided that not only did I have to have one, but I could make it myself! This hat was born.
This is a lovely scarf, perfect for casual or fancy wear. It is very easy and a quick crochet. Although designed for self striping or slow color changing yarns, such as Noro, It works up great in a solid or multi-colored yarn, and should only use 1 skein. Great for using up some of that extra stash you’ve got lying around!
This is a very simple scarf that changes from one color into another. It’s a quick and fun knit that looks great! It’s great for beginners. It’s done in a 2-2 rib on size 8 needles. Any worsted yarn will work well for this. I used Caron Simply Soft Brights, but there’s no reason another type won’t work.
