"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Oh my goodness! I love novelty yarns! This is the perfect dish cloth to add a pop of color and decorate the kitchen for the holidays. There are so many different colors (27 from the red heart website) that matching them up with a holiday shouldn't be difficult at all. I bet the texture will help get the dishes clean too!

I love this yarn. I make simple scrubbies holding a strand of cotton yarn with the scrubby yarn. Also, I prefer a smaller size...4x4". The cotton is great for absorbing dish soap and wiping down counters and they wash and dry perfectly .

Love the scrubby look of the yarn - like it was made just to knit dishcloths. Could also use it for a washcloth in the bath, or to wash the dog. Sometimes simply knitting a dishcloth is te perfect way to de-stress.

I am one of those people who cannot sit doing nothing - these dishcloths/scrubbies are ideal no pattern to follow, just knit to size. Not wasting time, using time to do something practical. I like this

I love this scrubby yarn. I ordered two skeins of it and that will make a lotta dishcloths.

Really? I have 2 skeins here, but each skein is just 92 yards,is it possible to get larger balls somewhere? I made 1 dishcloth with a different pattern and I barely had enough to finish it. I'd love to know what size of these balls make alot of dishcloths.

These would make the perfect rags. We always seem to be losing those at my house. Now, I can just knit them up myself. Thanks!
