"Ballband" Knitted Dishcloths
As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I'm still working on some dishcloths. I really like this pattern. Natalie at the WeHo SnB has made quite a few of these too. They are addicting. I was at the Michael's in Burbank, and they have a really good supply of Sugar 'n Cream kitchen cotton available.
After knitting a few of these, I'm not liking the raggedy edges that result from carrying the different color yarn up the side. As you can see in the close-up below, I crocheted an edge on the green and purple cloth. For some reason, this crocheted edge looks wonky to me too. Hmmm? I think the only solution to neatness would be to knit in some sort of border while still slip-stitching the base color up the sides of the cloth, maybe 2 stitches in? I have no clue how to do this. Any suggestions, excellent knitters out there?
I might just try to find a crochet stitch that simulates this pattern.
