Making dishcloths is quick and fun! Even better, this plentiful collection of 15 designs by Julie A. Ray can be knitted—or knooked! The Knook is an exciting new tool, a special crochet hook that replaces knitting needles. It creates true knitted fabric while the attached cord prevents dropped stitches. Knook kits are available at your local craft store. You can also get them from LeisureArts.com, where you’ll find excellent videos and free patterns for the knook. In this book, we’ve included instructions both for knitting and knooking the patchwork-inspired dishcloths.
“I really enjoy the quickness of making dishcloths,” says Julie A. Ray. “I wanted to bring my love of quilting into my love of knitting, thus, quilt block dishcloths! I encourage everyone to give knitting dishcloths a try—they’re beginner-friendly, and they open a door to all kinds of projects.” Julie not only knits, she also crochets, sews, and does cross stitch, fitting lots of creativity into her busy days.
