All I really have to work with right now is a full ball of cotton worsted, so I decided to practice by making another dishcloth. I wanted to try learning something new, so I gave a Basketweave Dishcloth a shot.
Row 1 is no problem. Row 2 is no problem. It’s when I start Row 3 that I get stuck. I wish there was a way of finding out if I suck, or the pattern sucks, ’cause I just can’t get the number of stitches to work out properly! Four tries later, I’m getting really tired of ripping it all out. 🙁
Oh, the joys of teaching yourself.
