Knooking the Mock Cable Dishcloth

I haven't made a dishcloth with a Knook in forever, but I'm glad I tried out the Mock Cable pattern from Dishcloths Made with a Knook to get back in the swing of things.  Yay!

The mock cables are made by working a twist, and that twist is made by skipping a stitch, knitting the next stitch, and then knitting your skipped stitch.  Then ta da!  A teeny tiny cable.  A mock cable.  It makes a lovely cable-y pattern.

 

I like how the 'wrong' side of the dishcloth looks as well.

This is a fun and simple pattern that makes a really lovely dishcloth.  I like it so much that I think I'd like to try it with knittings and see how my knitting gauge differs from my Knooking gauge.  I used a 4.5mm Knook, which would be a Size 7 knitting needle (that's in between a G and an H hook size in crochet hooks). Knitting is a little easier for me because it's what I'm used to and I've had a lot more knitting hours than Knooking hours, and I think it would be neat to see the two dishcloths made with different needles set out side by side.

I'm not sure why I put off making this dishcloth for so long.  It's a really great addition to my gift stash, and this was a pretty easy pattern to follow.

I know it looks a little warped.   But you know what blocks out a dishcloth just fine? Using it.

As a bonus to all that fun, I used a newer Knook made of plastic.  It's really flexible, which I didn't really think I'd like but I really do.  Really.  It's weird, but quite handy.

So yay for the new types of Knooks!  And yay for the Mock Cable pattern!  Dishcloths Made with the Knook has a few more patterns I'd like to try out.

I've got my eye on this Sunny pattern and I think I'll make that in the next few weeks.

In conclusion, yay!
