Kitty Dishcloth

One way to revive something is to participate. The Crochetville wish list has always been one of my favorite social activities there, but in recent years it has fallen off. I've answered a number of shopping requests over the years, but this round I decided it was time to make some small items and send them out into the world to see if it brings back some connections to our community.

One way to do that is to look for clues on the wish lists. One mentioned a love of cats and since my project goal is dishcloths and pot holders I went looking for a pattern that met that theme. I found the pot holder pretty quickly and will be posting my finished product soon. The dishcloth proved more elusive. However, I came across Michele Wilcox's Kitty Dishcloth in the out of print Big Book of Scrap Crochet Projects that I'd picked up while shopping at one of my favorite used book sites.

I did make a couple of changes to the original pattern. I used off white instead of the camel used in the pattern because I am determined to use up some of my cotton stash and camel is just not a frequent color I buy. I also gave the cat a pink nose. The black seemed a little harsh.

I like the way this pattern came out and I'm looking forward to making several other of the dishcloth/potholder patterns I originally purchased this book to find.

Aaaaw, that's just so, so cute. We love our purr babies and the Crochetville community sounds like such a wonderfully giving online community.
