Debbie,

That sounds sooooo intriguing!  I never thought of looming to make dishcloths...and I really like to make dishcloths!  That's one of my favorite gifts to make, because people usually use sponges and are surprised to find the dishcloths work so much better...best of all, they don't deteriorate the way sponges do.  I can't tell you how many times those stupid sponges had pieces that somehow gouged themselves out, even when they were still quite new, like a day or so later.  Frown  They're not particularly cheap, but they're often cheaply made.

It's so much fun to give a set of dishcloths...I usually make mine a bit smaller than most dishcloth patterns say to make them.  I find that when something is 7-9 inches wide, it's too much to hold onto, so I end up putting soap on one spot and then the rest of the cloth is jsut kind of "there."  Frown  I think 5-6 inches is the perfect size.

One year, I made dishcloths for all of my husband's friends...well, they loved them.  And the one guy told my husband, "They really work!"  LOL, that was one of my favorite compliments!  Smile

True, the larger squares can be used for afghans.  LOL, though that brings to mind a retired dishcloth, used as part of an afghan.  Wouldn't that be bizarre?  LOL.

the picture for this pattern came off a craft group i am a member of  on facebook another member of the group had posted it and had asked someone to put it through a pattern generator fo her no one would so i downloaded the picture and put it through the on site pattern wizard for her and i posted it to her post for her and i didn't even get a thank you from the woman now that's rude as far as i am concerned not saying thank you when sometime takes the time to do something for someone else and i was ill at the time when i downloaded the pic for this and put it through the pattern wizard here on site it doesn't take 2 minutes to say a simple thank you 

hi can i also have my graph size increased please thank you

I posted six FREE knitting patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Ginger,

Welcome!

We don't have a text function at the moment, so the best suggestion is to either add the name to your picture (you can do this with a photo editing program, such as gimp or paint.net - I'll add the links below - both are powerful and free!) or you could use an already-plotted alphabet and add that to your pattern.

GIMP is here:
