Pattern:From Ravellery

Yarn: Dishcloth cotton Ecru

Needles: 4.5mm

Time: Morning

New: Relief Patterns

Don’t know what the official name is but this is a bit like braille. A pattern is created by doing a different stitch on a stocking stitch background…I’d spotted a map of New Zealand as a dishcloth previously which I wanted to have a go at, and had been toying with the idea of knitting a flower with wire but lacked the pattern or the wire…I did however have the dishcloth cotton…and only a morning to do something.

Never tried dishcloth cotton before and my Mum prefers useful presents to “dust gathers”. She seemed pleased but I think she preferred the rest of her present, vouchers for the 1911 census!
