June Intâ€™l Dishcloth Swap â€“ Varigated or Ombre
This swap is for one handmade 100% cotton dishcloth (no tiny scrubbies!). I find most patterns are between 7â€ & 10â€ wide, so your dishcloths should be at least 7â€X7â€, or for round, at least 7â€ in diameter, shaped should be at least 7â€ 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). Juneâ€™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
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 donâ€™t need to wait for partners to be assigned. Choose any pattern and the monthâ€™s color, and get making! Iâ€™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 arenâ€™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 letâ€™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!*
