Cotton Dish Rag Cloth Knitting Machine Patterns written by Sharon Nani. Three patterns are included in Lesson Format for Fisherman Rib, Racked Rib, and Vertical Stripes of Fisherman Rib with Racked Rib.
Our popular Cotton dish rags knit by the Little Knitters get requests for the knitting pattern as well. So this knitting pattern is finally being shared with you! Perhaps it will inspire many new knitters in the creative hobby of machine knitting. But if you just enjoy your handknitting, we didn't leave you out either --- check out the identical pattern written as the 'hand knit version' also available in our online store in a couple days. Yarn Kits with the cotton yarn are on the way as well!
This pattern is written in Lesson Format. It starts with the beginner Fisherman Rib Dish Rag, then advances to the same dish rag in a racking rib pattern. Finially it tests your creativity by striped pattern with both fisherman rib and racked rib combine. There are lots of diagrams, tips, and explanations so you can take what you learn from these dishrags and apply it to other double bed patterns.
The Knitting Machine Version has been written for Passap and Japanese Standard Gauge machines with Ribbers. Mid gauge and Bulky machines can use the identical pattern, just changing the stitch sizes appropiate for your yarn. Therefore, any knitting machine with a ribber can use this pattern.
Sharon knit the sample dish rags on both the Passap DM80 (E6000 follows same directions without the console) and the Brothers Standard Gauge knitting machine with Silk Cities Softball 2.2 Cotton and Bonnie Triola's Double Spiral Cotton / Acrylic yarn. Watch for the yarn kits with enough yarn for all three dishrags coming soon. Check out the yarn kits show room.
