I had planned on trying to make a series of patterns that could be used with a variety of yarns and hooks, using remnants, etc, but it would take too long. I could spend eternity trying to write just one pattern in 20 different hook sizes. It's just I never have the right hook or the right yarn to make projects and always adapt patterns. But that's me, and it's probably why I can't follow a pattern. But if I want to do this properly, I have to go along with the whole yarn brand/gauge thing.
But, (not another but!), I have decided to try act on my principles, and use only either eco/fairtrade yarn or local yarn. Local meaning, either from Irish sheep, partially from Irish sheep, or at least processed in some way in Ireland. My apologies in advance if you can't get your hands on the particular yarn. Knowing me, there won't be that many patterns, or they won't be popular enough to warrant me feeling bad about this decision.... Support Irish Sheep...(and alpaca, llama, flax, etc....)
Anyway, enough banter, here's my latest pattern that needs testing, if anyone is interested.Don't laugh, remember I'm learning and starting small, very small....
Eco/Fairtrade Cotton Dishcloth
