June Int’l Dishcloth Swap – Varigated or Ombre

This swap is for one handmade 100% cotton dishcloth (no tiny scrubbies!). I find most patterns are between 7” & 10” wide, so your dishcloths should be at least 7”X7”, or for round, at least 7” in diameter, shaped should be at least 7” on longest side.

It can either be knit or crochet, and you can use any pattern you like (there are a TON of free patterns online). June’s color theme is VARIGATED or OMBRES (So, any colours you like, but the yarn has to have multiple colors that change as you go along. This can be shades and tints of one colour, or the yarn can have completely different colours). Make ONE dishcloth for one partner.

Optional: If you like, you can also use a BEACH/VACATION themed pattern. This, however, is NOT a requirement. I find themed patterns fun, and dishcloths are small enough to try new patterns out without too much stress.

So, to recap:

Make ONE dishcloth for ONE partner

Use the VARIGATED or OMBRE yarn

100% cotton

Knit or crochet

Feel Free to also make in a beach/vacation theme, although not a requirement

Monthly swaps will be posted at the beginning of the month, the signup deadline will be on the 15th of each month, and swap will be due on the last day of the month.

You don’t need to wait for partners to be assigned. Choose any pattern and the month’s color, and get making! I’ve posted the list of every month for the rest of the year, so you can go ahead and make these up any time.

Shipping for these should be fairly cheap, as they aren’t heavy, and are fairly thin when unfolded. (I know here in Canada, they are flat enough would ship as an oversized letter instead of a parcel, greatly decreasing shipping costs. You may want to see if your country offers the same type of shipping). :D

Swappers must have a 4.95 rating to join, with no recent 1s or 3s without good reason. Newbies are welcome, but you must have a fully completed profile to join. I will angel if needed, but let’s not make that necessary!

@LisaLisa3 hosts a fun monthly USA dishcloth swap, so if you're in the USA, check hers out too; you could participate in both, and get twice as many dishcloths, lucky ducks!*
