    Kara, where do you find your inspiration for crochet patterns? Yours are always simply beautiful!

    • Kara July 12, 2013 at 10:57 pm #

      Awww … you are always so sweet to me, Marilyn!

  9. Elle July 29, 2013 at 5:27 pm #

    These are beautiful when first made. However, they stretch terribly when wet, and when washed, and dried, come back in a rectangle, not a square. wish I had made and used a prototype bedpforehand!Imade about 25 of them as gifts! But the recipients still seemed to like them.

    • Kara July 30, 2013 at 7:08 pm #

      My stitches tend to stretch when wet and when I’m using them but the stitches tighten back up again right after I wash and dry it.

  10. Karen July 30, 2013 at 12:28 pm #

    On this one do you have to cut the yarn when changing each row or do you just carry it up the side?

    • Kara July 30, 2013 at 7:04 pm #

      You can just carry it up the side. Nice and easy 🙂

      • Bethany August 27, 2016 at 7:33 am #

        I wish I had read the comments first… I have thought about carrying up the side, but I didn’t figure out how to it could be done, and never saw anyone do it on a tutorial. Now I have a beautiful dishcloth with 21 ends left to weave in… (sniff) :,(

    Why is it so hard to print here? I did get one pattern printed but oh my I sure didn’t want a pic the size of my paper. Isn’t there a way to print smaller pics?
    thanks so much

    • Kara August 1, 2013 at 6:49 am #

      Hi Gloria 🙂 At the bottom of the post there is a printing icon. It should let you choose and eliminate parts of the post you can print. Hope that helps.

  12. kim January 1, 2015 at 6:37 pm #

    Hi, I love these patterns and the pretty colors. What kind of yarn did you use for these?

  13. shoshy roback April 20, 2015 at 11:08 am #

    Is the Happy Crochet Dishcloth Pattern the same as the textured dishcloth? I like to add everything I make to Ravelry but can’t find it on your page in Ravelry. Thanks

  14. Cindy August 23, 2016 at 9:07 am #

    For those of us who don’t understand the chrochet symbols, it would be nice if we had a chart or something to learn the stitches!

  15. Victoria April 26, 2017 at 1:22 pm #

    Hi love the colors you used. If you don’t mind me asking what is the color names you used? I have those colors but they don’t seem to be the right shades and look awful together. Lol.

    • Kara May 1, 2017 at 4:13 pm #

      Hi Victoria 🙂 Unfortunately, this yarn has been discontinued by Knit Picks … it was their organic cotton.
