Category Archives: Ballband Dishcloth

Header and Hearts

Since starting this site, there have been questions about what patterns are used in the cloths on the header. The one on the left is Grandma’s Favorite and can be found here or here.

The pattern on the right is called the Ballband Dishcloth. It is named this because it was originally found on the wrapper, or ball band of Peaches & Creme cotton yarn.

You can find the pattern in a couple of different places. The first link below is to the original pattern.

It can also be found in the Mason Dixon Knitting Book  by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne.

There are variations of both patterns. The links to some of these can be foundon other pages of this site:

More links are being added to the page: Heart Cloths today as well as to other pages.

Have a great day!

Neat Discovery

While placing an order on line for some yarn a couple of days ago I made a neat discovery. Elmore Pisgah has posted the pattern to the original Ballband Dishcloth on its web site.  I was so excited because now when I can’t find the copy I typed off from a Ballband, I can just look it up on line or in the patterns file on my computer. I don’t know if  it has been there for a while or not, but I did not see it until recently.

The link to it has been added to the Slip Stitch Cloths-Knit  page of this blog because it seems to me to be the right action to take.
