Information on things you’ll see in the video:
The yarn I used in my dishcloths is Knit Picks Comfy Worsted.

My silver ring is actually a knitting needle gauge, and can be found here.

The nail polish I’m wearing is by Julep, and isn’t actually a color, but I like the way it looks. It’s a nail treatment, called Oxygen Nail Treatment. It seems to help my nails grow, and prevents chipping and peeling.

  1. This is such a lovely stitch pattern. Thanks for sharing this with us. I look forward to your videos each Wednesday.
    I already have a set of interchangeable needles and was going to resist buying another set, but after seeing how beautiful the Knitter’s Pride Marblz were, I just had to order them. Now I just have to figure out how to explain to my husband why I needed (wanted) more needles!!
    Love the look of your new website — very nice and easy to navigate.

  2. Any chance that you might consider adding charts for future stitch patterns? I have been making an effort to use charts, and after some beginners struggle, I find I prefer them. Just a thought. Thanks so much!

  3. Hello Staci, I have a question. I found this pattern online callee birch trees. It is a lacy scarf. My only issue is that I don’t understand yf – which means to bring yarn to the front. could you explain this to me?

    Thanks
    Naomi N.

  4. Naomi – there should be a glossary in your pattern explaining the abbreviations. If there isn’t, you can always contact the pattern designer for clarification. “YF” usually means “yarn forward” which is the same as “yarn over”.

  5. Hi Staci-

    I was wondering if it’s possible to adjust this pattern to make a 10″ square? I need to make a square as a contribution to my friend’s son’s blanket. Or alternatively, if you have another 10″ square pattern you think is lovely? I’m an ‘ok’ knitter- I do ok with directions! 🙂 Thanks!

  6. I got the pattern, my question is do you start at the direction ‘to work in the round ‘ to start it ???? Or at the make the dishcloth , C/o 43, k9 rows, k5,work in shadow? ?? Please advise, thank you

  7. Lisa – follow the directions under “to make a dishcloth”, and the pattern repeat rounds are under “shadow chevron pattern”. Working “in the round” means to work in a tube, like a hat or glove.

  8. Staci,
    I just made a dishcloth for a friend’s wedding shower. She is a chevron lover and when you put this out, my first thought was “perfect!” Thank you for the lovely pattern!

  9. I Stacy
    I am from Montréal, Québec, Canada
    I love all wath you do
    Because of you, I finish a pair of sock who they were somewear unfinish…my mother do the first one…
    thanks very much for realy nice video and so easy to understand.
    Like you can read , I am sorry for english, I learn english in my firsf job and my bus was a germain person who speak english/germain.
    I nerver fine the nice little pink box…mayby they dont have any more.. continous your good job tanks very much Michelle

  10. I am unsure of something. It says a multiple of 8 plus 1. Then it says cast on 43 stitches….
    Which is not a multiple of 8 plus 1. What am I doing wrong here? I want to make the cloth bigger. 56 is a muliple of 8. Plus one would make it 57, but the pattern didn’t work out after the border row. Thanks for any help!

  11. Sheila – the instructions for casting on 43 stitches are for the dishcloth, which includes a total of 10 border stitches. 43 minus 10 is 33. 33 minus 1 (because it is a multiple of 8 + 1), is 32.
