Weekly Dishcloth: Knitting the Christmas Tree Pattern

I couldn't wait any longer.  I made my first Christmas craft.

Two things:
1) I can't believe I held off for as long as I did.
2) Of course it's a dishcloth!

I've been wanting to try out the Christmas Tree pattern from Holiday Knit Dishcloths for quite some time now and I am so happy now because I made this.

I love the way these purls make up this simple, geometric-looking Christmas tree design.  I love the idea of making a trio of these with red, green, and white yarn.  It would be the perfect hosting gift, or just a perfect gift. 

I definitely want to make several more of these.  I have plenty of green yarn (I bought one of those cones.  WHY DID I BUY ONE OF THOSE CONES?!?!) and this is a very quick pattern, so I have time to make plenty of these for gifts.  I knit this in a little over an hour, and I'm sure my next attempts will go more quickly now that I'm familiar with the pattern.

And I do plan to get good and familiar with this pattern.  I love nearly every single pattern in Holiday Knit Dishcloths, but Christmas crafts thrill me to my very soul. 

And this particular Christmas pattern? It's a Christmas tree!  In a dishcloth!  And it's just purl stitches!  The pattern is graded 'Easy' and let me promise you that it really is.  If you can work a knit stitch and a purl stitch, you can make this.  And you'll be incredibly happy that you did.  This is a lovely pattern.  You can make some pretty festive magic with regular cotton yarn and a little free time.

Happy holiday crafting!
