Notice the ends? Yeah, I have yet to weave in the multitude of ends **sigh** Guess its the trade-off for using lots of colour (besides, some of the colours I'm using are only small amounts).
Besides the ballband dishcloths, I made a few more using my own pattern. In the green-blue version pictured above, I added a navy border using intarsia. In the white-blue version, I varied the pattern. Instead of the typical slip and knit stitch, I used the eye of partridge stitch where the slip and knit stitches are alternated each row.
And then I saw some awesome dishcloths over at Purl Soho blog. All three patterns utilize slipped stitches to create a thick yet colourful fabric. While all three patterns look interesting, only the third pattern actually caught my eye. The Triple L Tweed Dishcoth has a lovely texture created with three colours.
What do you think? Doesn't it look different? I worked a few rows of multi-coloured garter and then adjusted the pattern using 33 stitches plus 2 (one for each end as selvage since my plan was to pick up stitches and work a few rows of garter). This means I eliminated the first 3-stitch section of the pattern (I'll post my mods when I'm finished).
I'm not sure the changes worked . . . I'll keep you posted. ;)
