Another dishcloth and knitted socks

Good morning!!
I was trying on a couple of pairs of my hand-knitted socks this morning and they both had holes! That's one great thing about handmade socks-- you cna use another piece of sock yarn and fix them up just fine. I have made a 1/2 dozen pairs or so and had a couple of them for 3 years now! Just mend the little holes and the mending adds some extra color and character I figure.

I wanted to post another dishcloth pattern here, as they make such great Christmas gifts. Time to start making them

Scraps of Crochet cotton (Sugar and Cream etc)

I make lots of these as they work up quickly! Great to keep in your purse for a car trip! Fantastic for gifts!

Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from the hook-counts as 1 dc, 2 dc in same ch, (skip 1 ch, sc in next ch, skip 1, ch 3 dc in next ch) across to last ch, 1 dc, ch 3 and turn.
Row 2: Dc in 3rd st from the hook-counts as 1 dc, 2 dc in same st, (skip 1 st, sc in next st, skip 1 st, 3 dc in next st) across to last st, 3 dc, ch 3 and turn.

Hi Bev,

I too have been making some dishcloths for Christmas presents. Thanks for the pattern- I may have to try that one. Right now I'm stuck on my favorite simple hdc pattern. These first few are going to be a variegated pink for my mom for Christmas.

Thanks so much for sharing!!
