Sunshine: bright, cheery, and always ready to lift your mood. It’s no secret that summer is my favorite season (yes, even as a knitter), and that is because of the beautiful sunshine. There’s nothing like a bright, sunny day to lift my spirits and chase the blues away. Now, with the Summer in the Sun Dishcloth, we can have the summer sun brightening a day in the kitchen any day of the year!
The Summer in the Sun Dishcloth is a fun, quick knit that uses simple lace techniques to create a sun motif that will cheer up your kitchen all year long. I highly recommend knitting a dishcloth in each of your favorite colors for maximum cheerfulness! This pattern is worked from bottom to top.
