Pretty Pinwheels

This month in the DecorAccentsInc group on Yahoo, we are having a Loom-Along.  The pattern is Pinwheel Dishcloth by Isela Phelps.  You can find the pattern at the Loom Knitters Circle ezine.  I really enjoyed this pattern.  It is a great introduction to short row shaping and it was fun to see the dishcloth take shape.

Here is my finished Pinwheel Dishcloth:

And here it is after I added a crochet ruffle border:

I love how this dishcloth turned out 🙂  Do you like the border?  If you want to try it out, here is how I did it:

1.  After you have blocked your Pinwheel Dishcloth, use a size J crochet hook and attach your yarn to the edge of the cloth with a sc.  Ch 3.  Skip a loop (edge of a row) and sc in the next loop.  Repeat all the way around the cloth.  Join with slip st to first sc.

2.  Slip st in next ch 3 sp.  Ch 1.  Sc in same ch 3 sp.  Ch 3.  Sc in next ch 3 sp.  Repeat all the way around.  Join with slip st to first sc.

3.  Repeat Round 2.  Join with slip st to first sc.  Finish off.


Have a great day!
