    1. Hi, Liz,
      Technically. the cotton yarn will make it a dishcloth. However, it’s pretty lacy. If I were you, I’d choose a less open-work motif for a dishcloth. The flowering mum trivet in my patterns and tutorials page might be a slightly better option. Or, if you want a smaller scrubbie type cloth, any of the other motifs.

      OR. If there is something specific you’re looking for, let me know and I can see what I can come up with 🙂

    1. A picot is a term for a little “bump.” In this case, make the dc the pattern calls for, chain 3, then slip stitch in the top of the dc. This will make that little bump. Let me know if this makes sense!

  1. Hi, could you tell me what the difference is between a skip (sk) and a space (spc)? Many thanks. I’m so pleased I’ve found your blog – your tutes are so understandable and clear.

    1. Sure! Skip means to skip over a stitch from the previous round, and not work into that skipped stitch. A space refers to an actual space from the previous round (it may be a chain one space or greater), and usually (but not always), you’ll work a stitch into it. For example, a pattern might say “make 3 dc in next space,” or “work a shell into next ch6 space.”

      Please let me know if this makes sense — my brain is mush from work!

      1. I now feel I should slap my forehead and say “Doh!” I haven’t been to work so I have no excuse for my brain being mush! Thank you and sorry to all those who read the question and wondered if I’d been at the gin bottle all day long……. :oD
