Lizard Ridge Dishcloths

A dishcloth version of my first pattern, the Lizard Ridge blanket.

Gauge: not crucial; just be sure your needles give you a fabric you like.

Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.

If ‘knitting designer’ had been one of the job choices for those aptitude tests they give you in high school, I wouldn’t have spent so many years trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up. My best subject in high school was math; my best classes in college were logic, drawing, and a commercial art class. After careers in computer programming/analysis and child-rearing, knit design snuck up on me, but I think it’s the perfect use of my odd skill set! I love every step of the process, from figuring out how to actually make what I’ve envisioned to putting the finishing touches on a pattern, not to mention all the knitting that comes in between!

I also love reading and hiking and spending time on Brier Island in Nova Scotia every summer.
