I'm trying to post 3 patterns today, and am taking this opportunity while little M is napping. This one is a quick and easy knit. :-)




I know, it's a few months early for Halloween. I just couldn't wait. I'm having fun converting charts to row-by-row instructions, and then knitting them up to see how they turn out. I still can't knit from chart. :-( It's on my "to learn" list. Really!!! This pattern is inspired from BW3 p179. I saw it last year and had been meaning to knit it up, I just never got around to it until now. This cloth is about 9.5" x 8.5" (~24 cm x 21.5 cm). The Bat Cloth above is knit with S&C Hot Orange. I have two orange yarns which look the same to me.




I suppose there is a difference of shades between S&C Pumpkin (left) an S&C Hot Orange (right). However they both look the same when I'm rummaging through a box of cotton yarn. That's M's hand in the photo. She is usually pawing at anything I'm trying to take a photo of.

Stitch Patterns used in this cloth include:
Garter Stitch, BW1 pg 10
Stockinette Stitch, BW1 pg 10
The Bat, BW3 pg 179

Please email me if you would like your photo and a link to your blog (if you have one) to appear in My Readers' Gallery.


Bat Cloth pattern can be downloaded from Smariek Knits Yahoo Group.

Hey, I was wondering if I could use your pattern for a group "Mystery" project. I run the blog and ravelry group, "Craft With Me" and we would like to do a challenge where we follow a pattern without using the picture to see how it works. I have a crochet pattern for them, but I don't knit yet, so I was wondering if I could post the instructions to this washcloth on my group, and possibly on my blog. It's an adorable pattern!!
