I modified a dishcloth pattern to make a coaster to match the dishcloth. My first real experience with purl stitch. :cheering:
Helps if I post the picture LOL
Wow! Your stockinette looks really good! That's really pretty.
Perfect! Great alteration of a pattern, too.
At this rate, you'll be ready to tackle a sweater in no time!
A sweater is a scary thought lol! An Afghan maybe. A scarf. Lol. I'll get there. I want to learn some more stitches first. Thanks to both of you!
How cute! Congratulations on mastering the purl stitch! You are well on your way to becoming a great knitter!
[Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth](http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#query=grandmothers favorite dishcloth) is a great pattern. You can learn and get used to yarn overs (yo) for increasing and then work on doing decreases. It's versatile too. Use it to make a dishcloth or washcloth or make it bigger and make a blanket, work just the first half and then bind off and you have a triangular shawl. There are lots of other patterns you can use to practice all kinds of stitch patterns. It's kind of fun really.
I'll take a look at that pattern, GG. I'm working on a scarf and another wash cloth (different pattern) but I'm already collecting patterns!
I knit my first sweater after 3 mos. it's not as hard as you think. :hug:
Coaster looks great!
Thanks Jan and Auburnchic. Scary thought right now but I haven't been doin this long. Maybe in a couple months I'll be more confident.
Nicely done, woofens!
Very nicely done! What is the yarn you're using? A sweater is actually easier than you might think. Practice as you're doing (and doing so well) and learn to decrease and you'll be ready if you want to give it a try.
The yarn is Lily Sugar 'n Cream Country Stripes is the color. Thanks for the ego boost! I'm just such a perfectionist... I'm trying to get over that. LOL
For a new knitter, you really do have lovely stitches and the coaster is so cute!
Very nice! I love the colorway, too!
Thanks, everyone! :aww:
Great idea for the coaster! Dish cloths are a good projects to learn on, IMO. You can learn new stitches, and they knit up pretty quickly, too. And, of course, they're practical!
