Group Cloth

This was an experiment I tried for a silent auction at an upcoming craft sale. I asked the ladies on the Monthly Dishcloth KAL group to send me stitches for one row, covering 32 stitches. I got almost 30 responses! The result wasn't exactly ugly, and it wasn't exactly beautiful. It's what I would call...... interesting. It was fun watching it grow, one row at a time. Here is a picture of the final product, along with the pattern. After each row is the name of the person who designed it. Some people got pretty creative, and if you are unfamiliar with any of the stitches or abbreviations, this website can help.

I tried to correct any mistakes I came across (yes, there were a few) but I may have missed one. If you find one, please let me know!

Looks great! I wonder how different it would look with variegated yarn.

What a great idea! "knit to order" fantastic.

Lindy I think it's pretty nice... what a great idea and a great way to try new pattern stitches.

By the way my niece was homeschooled as well and so smart, she just received a full scholarship to a college (40,000 a year)she wouldn't have it any other way either.

I love looking at your blog, it always makes me smile.
