dish cloths, with a difference

sandra_fergusonNovember 16, 2008

Let me tell Y'all something different I did with dishcloths that I made last year....I make the ones that start in the corner and work their way out from there, although I'm sure you could do the same thing with any favorite cloth..... after I have reached the halfway mark and worked my way about halfway down the decreasing side, I stop using the yarn and start using a long narrowly cut strips of netting that I've cut and balled. There is no right or wrong to the size, so experiment with a piece,,,if memory serves, mine was between 1/4" and 1/2". This makes a nice 'scratcher' corner for your dish cloth

What a great idea, Sandra. I'll have to do that on the next one I make. Thanks.

Good idea! I remember Heloise (the original) loved using nylon net.

That is a wonderful idea. Now I have to get some net and try it. Thanks, Donna

You mean Heloise (great gal that she was), came up with this idea first? I'm crushed..thought I invented it myself...sigh!
(my only complaint is that the net is hard on the would NOT want to do the whole thing in net, believe me!)

I have knit a dishcloth (a small one) all in net. It was great for scrubbing but terrible to clean after.

BTW Heloise's scrubber wasn't knit, but gathered in a ball.
