The Shadow Dishcloth Pattern was a design I loved all the more when completed. I spotted this stitch pattern in one of my books and thought it looked fun to knit up. Little did I know, until it was finished, how much I really liked it. The two sides are so very different and each presents a beautiful design in their own right.
After BO (binding off) I turned the dishcloth over and over to admire my work; as we all do! I quickly noticed that the WS (wrong side) was just as pretty as the RS (right side). To tell you the truth I favored the WS over the RS. I posted on LOK Facebook group asking which side every knitter preferred… It was a toss-up! I guess that just goes to show you… the WS can become the RS and vice versa. Which is your favorite? Post a photo of your completed Shadow dishcloth on LOK Facebook group and let us all know.
In this case, I used 2 colors for my dishcloth because I wanted to see what
the stitch pattern looked like in the different colors. If you want to knit your
dishcloth up with just 1 color you will have enough yarn to do that with 1 skein.
In conclusion, if you want to use this particular stitch pattern to work up something else such as
a tea towel or a baby blanket any odd number cast on stitches will work.
