Kitchen Set

loom-086.jpgKitchen Set

 These are both knitted on the Blue Knifty Knitter

I used Cotton yarn.

Use two stands of yarn.

Knit using the e- wrap

 Dish Soap Cover

loom-088.jpg

 Row 1 – 10 knit

Turn brim knit off

Row 11- 27 knit

Row 28 mock crochet stitch around

Row 29 – 36 knit

Take off with gathering method ( don’t pull to tight you need to make the hole big enough to fit  around the bottle top)

Then I crochet a cord for it. I didn’t keep track of how many chain stitches i did. Do make it long enough tie around the bottle. I did chain a length and then a chain stitch back in all the chains.

Then weave the cord you made in and out of the moch crochet row. Slip over a dish soap bottle and tie a bow

Towel Holder

loom-093.jpg

Rows 1- 10 Knit

Turn to make brim

Rows 11 – 20 Knit

Take off with gathering stitch leave hole big enough to fit the I-Cord

make I-cord about 10 to 12 inches long tie both ends together to make a loop

insert cord though the hole and then loop towell over the icord under  the top part and

pull the I cord tight .

Now you have a item that looks like abell holding a towel. you can put it on a knob or you

can loop it to fit on a bar type handle of you drawers or cuboards. I like this because i can

change the towel when needed and not have to change the top .
