Ever since I charted the Heart in Grandma’s Favorite Dishcloth knitting pattern, I’ve wanted to knit it in color. I love the stockinette heart in the middle of the garter stitch…but what would a change of color do?
The Front of Grandma’s Favorite Dishie
I’m thrilled with my first ever attempt to knit with a color change.
But I had two challenge:
- I had to learn how to pick up a new color without leaving a hole.
- Since there is no “back” to this project, that meant I couldn’t carry my color. Yep, there were 5 mini balls of yarn for this project! Way too many for a first timer.
This gave me a new appreciation for any and all knitting projects that use more than one color. And an even greater appreciation for knit groups! I’m definitely going to hit one up next time I start this project!
The Back of Grandma’s Favorite Dishie
So…since I didn’t carry the color…what does the back look like? Here ya go…a sneak peak.
Yeah, not very pretty. But you know what? I’m still gonna use it. Or is this one of those projects only a mother could love…so I should send it to my mom???
If you’ve got some knitting advice, I’m all ears. Leave me a comment below.
