Princess Crown dishcloth pattern

This is the first pattern I've designed, and I'm very excited about it! One of the ladies in the Monthly Dishcloth KAL group was looking for a crown pattern, and I emailed her, and said that if she couldn't find one, I'd design it for her. Sure enough, she wasn't able to find one, so I gave it a try. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Fantastic first try!!! Way to go and thanks for sharing!!! :)

Scarlett said...

So very cool to see your talent. I am snagging the pattern to make some of my own. Thanks so much.

I am new to knitting. Can you explain how you designed this as I would love to design some for my friends of various charts.

Bernie said...

Love your crown. I have a friend who always says, "I am a queen." So I will knit this one up and give it to her, 'the queen.'
Great first try Lindy, keep it up!

Sarah said...

Lindy ~ That is just the perfect dishcloth design! Thanks so much!My sister and niece, the two princesses in my life, will enjoy the cloths I'll be knitting up for them!

Enjoy designing, knitting and blogging!

This is beautiful! Perfect for my 8 yr old princess! :) Great job and thanks for the pattern.

Lindy said...

Scarlett, I'm glad you like the pattern! All I did was draw it out on a graph, and then translate the graph into individual rows. If you draw the basic design you want onto graph paper, you can get a good idea of how it should go. I don't know if that's how other people do it, but that's how I did it. I hope this helps!

Krissy said...

Yeah Lindy! Ur an awesome knitter. That pattern TOTALLY rocks. Keep up the SWEET knitting.

Kudos to the person who taught you and for all your education!

Lindy, I found your pattern thru google. Like the wonderful simplicity compared to the wacky crown designs I've seen elsewhere. I plan to incorporate your princess crown design into my nieces' Xmas hats.

Amy said...

Hi! I found this pattern when printing out your Daisy dishcloth pattern. Are you planning on adding this to Ravelry?

I've already stitched this up and have added this to my projects page with a link to here.

Amy said...

I noticed that when I was typing all of my info into Ravelry for your dishcloth, that I could add the pattern myself. I hope that you don't mind, 'cause I did add it! I didn't add your picture, I thought you might want to do so yourself. I love this pattern!

Lindy, I hope to be as good as you are one day. I have only been knitting for about 4 years. I will soon be 59 years old! Thank you so much for sharing these free patterns with us.

I especially love the Empty Tomb. That one will be done for my MIL for Christmas. Again, Thank you so much!
