I love your washcloth patterns and will hopefully have time to knit some up for teacher gifts along with some handmade soap! And your "hugs" are just adorable. Where did you learn the embroidery technique for the face? That's always the hardest part for me.

These dishcloth patterns are great. I am also a fan of KrisKnits and am collecting her patterns a few at a time. Thank you so much for these and for offering them for free. I will knit lots of them for gifts!

I love these patterns! I'm actually going to make a Peace, Love, and Happiness baby blanket with them for a little hippie girl who is pregnant. It's a great way to use up extra yarn and then I'm sewing them all together a d crocheting a border. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Row 46 is wrong but easy to spot.

Have tried several times to knit "Peace,Love,Happiness Dishcloth and am having a hard time figuring out 1-3,is it"1,2,3 knit all or just 1-3? I'm fairly unfamiliar with knitting instructions, being that I'm just delving in starting more detailed knitted istruction patterns. So I finally figured out to knit on right with tbe written instructions and, knit on back too to purl only. Maybe I'm not into doing the instructions correctly. But I'm continuing as I write you. NOT Giving up!
The white lines on the graph, do I need to knit those too? Front or Back of the dishcloth? Appreciate all your input. will keep trying so help me God! Love your work. I KNOW I'll get it sometime! Mary D Sterling
