This cute little cabled owl dishcloth was on someone's blog (sorry, I was wandering on other people's links and have no idea where I first saw this). It has just enough cabling to be fun.
While playing around with Sugar'n Cream Stripes, I came up with these dishcloths. The first is just a rectangle. I can't remember now what stitch I used to make the diagonal lines. But the striping really looks nice.
Here is a simple mitered square with self-striping Sugar'n Cream.
Here is a simple basket weave with the same yarn.
And, finally, here is a hotpad made from an i-cord. I used the small end of the Knifty Knitter spool loom to make a cord from 2 strands of Sugar'n Cream yarn, and then I sewed it together.
