And it gave it to a friend!
She cried a little!
She also cried a little when I gave her the Short but Sweet cowl from Crochet Cowls as a present, but she's kind of an emotional person and it's a pretty sweet cowl. Seriously, if you want to get hugged hard enough to hurt your bosom and have some back fat gripped a bit too tightly, giving cowls out as Christmas gifts is the way to go. My friends give good hugs. Anyway, let's talk about this pattern a bit!
I didn't have any Christmas-y variegated yarn that this pattern calls for, so I went with red and white instead. Red and white is always Christmas-y if you want it to be. But this would work nicely in other color combinations--which is what I'm counting on, because I'd love to try this again. Look at these zig zags. So dadgummed cute!
Plus, this has a lot of variety: SSK, K2TOG, knitting in the front and the back of stitches. All that on top of knits and purls and color changes! It's a quick little project that calls for worsted weight cotton yarn and Size 6 needles, and you can finish it in an hour or so. I think it's a great hostess gift if you're going to a holiday party, or it can just be a fun project that makes your own kitchen look a little more festive.
But this pattern is only available until December 22, so hurry and buy it now! And if you need even more dishcloth dress magic in your life, check out Dishcloth Dresses because that's available all the time and is incredibly delightful.
I know you need this kind of magic in your life, and in your kitchen.
