I have been on a dishcloth knitting kick over the past few weeks, and in an effort to use every last bit of yarn left in my stash, I tied all the scraps together to form a multicolour yarn ball. Nine scraps were tied together in total and that was enough to complete a neat looking dishcloth.


Knitting through this dishcloth was fun because I didn't know how the finished piece would look. It was a surprise to see all the colours come together, and I enjoyed watching it unfold.

  1. How pretty! A few months ago I asked my daughter if she had any leftover yarn. She said yes and gave me lots. I ended up crocheting a wonderful afghan/throw. I could use it as a shawl too. I used the same technique you did and ended up with this beautiful garment. Yo go girl! Cheers!!

    1. Awesome! I love using up scraps - always hate to see anything go to waste. Good for you for making a afghan/throw/shall. Sounds pretty! Cheers!

  2. Thanx Jen. It's so pretty. By serendipity it looks like something straight out of Mexico or South America. I love your dishcloth. Is it made from cotton? So cute. Cheers!!

    1. Yes it's the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, I use it for all my dishcloths. Now that I've used it all up I can go get some new colours. Fun! :)

  3. I have sooooo many potholders from left over yarn, it's silly! Heck, so do a lot of friends (they make great gifts).

    1. They really do make great gifts. I have 12 in my stockpile right now... Good for wedding showers, new homes, etc. Plus I love using them too.
