  • AMAZING. This Kansas girl intends to start one IMMEDIATELY.

  • This is adorable! I’m going to make a few. Do you think it will turn my sons’ off from washing dishes?

  • So cuuuute! No one will be allowed to so much as touch the one I plan to make for myself. It will reside in a place of honor near the sink and will be “fer lookin’ at, not usin’ so back off!” Thank you so much for the pattern.

  • I love the dish cloth! My sister decorated her kitchen with sunflowers and a few of these will make a great gift for her b’day in November. Thanks for the pattern.

  • This might push me over the brink into knitting washcloths. And re yesterday’s post, the linen squares and the pillow that inspired them remind me irresistably of an “illiterate E” eye chart. Anyone else get that? NOT knocking it– I like that big E look!

  • Love the dish cloth! But, I must admit, I’m *really* loving the dish!!
    Have a bunch of leftover cotton yarn from a mitered square quilt, so a few nontraditional colored sunflowers are in my future. Thanks for the pattern!

  • Cute, cute, cute! I’m still not a dishcloth user, but I make them as washcloths and give them away with soap. This one is a must-do. Thanks for sharing!

  • I’ve added the pattern to Ravelry 🙂

  • That is so amazingly cute!

  • ok so i am a dowk…is that a Martha Stewart enamel dutch oven that thar sunflower dis cloth is sitting in?

  • Thank you! I have only been thinking about that dishcloth DAILY, ever since the first time you shared it, and now I can make it! YAY!!! (I am SO happy.)

  • I’m loving it. I’ve been knitting dishcloths obsessively all summer and now this. What a pleasant change it’ll make from the purely utilitarian ones. Thanks for sharing!

  • Thank you for this! I just arrived home (Minneapolis) from Omaha 30 minutes ago. The whole drive I was lovin the sunflowers and Black Eyed Susans.

  • So bright and cheery, and just what my kitchen needs! Thanks for sharing.

  • My granddaughter started a sunflower seed for me as a kindergarten project this spring. It is now blooming gloriously in my garden. Now I can return a sunflower to her. And I found an old skein of Red Heart 100% Cotton Knit & Crochet Yarn, color brown, in my stash. How lucky am I? Thanks for the pattern. Your pictures are wonderful.

  • I loved this pattern in the calendar last year. So cute. I’m all about the cutesy stuff, hell I’ve just crocheted four chicken shaped potholders in a row out of dishcloth cotton and they’re likely not my last! At least I’m making something in my stash decrease. 🙂

  • Ooh this is adorable. I remember when you first posted about it and I’ve been looking forward to getting the pattern! What about one to wash dishes with and one to hang decoratively above the sink? Is that going too far??

  • It’s really cute! But I’m curious- what does the back look like. I’m wondering if the houndstooth pattern would make a nice scarf. ;^)

  • I’m making a scarf/stole in a “mistake” version of the houndstooth to get through some old stash yarn, the pattern looks great for a dishcloth and would probably make a great towel too.

  • Love it! There aren’t enough frou-frou dishclothes in the world.

  • Kay, Its darlin! I love sunflower season.

  • OOOOOh, I loooooove sunflowers! How cute is that?! Thanks for the pattern, and I am eagerly awaiting the new book….

  • Ooooh, this is too cute. I’m thinking teacher gifts, office exchange…and maybe one or two for myself!

  • can someone tell me the flow meant by “two row stripes”? Does that mean color A row 1&2, then color B row 3&4, then color C row 1&2 then repeat? I did that but the hounds tooth doesn’t look right.
    Thanks

  • Thanks for updating the directions. I get it now.
    Maybe I’ll do a dishcloth-lympics!
    Thanks again

  • Kay, another beyond-belief production. Looking over the adjectives in comments, I could only add “incredible” which still does not seem splashy enough.
    Definitely cheered me up to see this. Thanks, naomi

  • Look at you on the front page of whipup.net!
    Congrats!

  • smiles abound. thank you!

  • Kay, if you knit the petals as a sawtooth edging (ref EZ’s Pi Are Square shawl), you get the same effect without having to sew in all those ends.
    I know, I’m a Lazy Knitter (TM)
    Just what I need down here in winter, although the daffodils are now starting to pop up everywhere!

  • Thank you for sharing this adorable pattern!

  • This would be the perfect dishcloth for January in MN. thanks!
