ARE THERE ANY DISHCLOTH PATTERNS THAT YOU CAST ON ALL THE STITCHES AT ONCE INSTEAD OF HAVING TO KEEP ADDING ON. IT WOULD BE EASIER FOR ME. THANKS-----DORIS HENDRICKS

Knitting is a fascinating pastime. Rewarding. Useful. Reading the comments of other knitters I wish I lived next door. My experience with the Homecrafters yarn and pattern has developed over nearly thirty years. I have found that the dishcloth which begins with..cast on four stitches is very versatile. Most of my friends to whom I have give dishcloths to, prefer a smaller version. I usually use a metric size 5 needle. Also I use circular needles for most of my projects. To make the smaller size, increase to 40-44 sts. depending on the gauge it works to. A group of ladies that I work with uses this same pattern, excepting they work according to their supply of yarn. If they have six ball of yarn, (as a sample) of the same shade. They follow the pattern until half of the yarn is used, then they begin the decreasing and naturally that means when the arrive at only four stitches on the needle, they cast off. We give these squares to nursing homes and needy people. I hope this gives another idea to all your readers. Happy Knitting. Aunt Polly

To Laddeehuskie: Could you give more information on how your mother knits the larger blankets, ie: number of cast on stitches, type of yarn used, etc. I would love to use this for charity blankets also.

My mother loves this pattern. She has used the same pattern, using larger needles and double strand worsted wool for blankets. Many of her Mizpah ladies make the blankets for charities. So far since January she has completed 9 of the blankets. She likes to make one a month for the church. She calls the pattern a "Remson" Blanket. It is a great way to use up her scraps of worsted, and has completed several that are queen size.
