48 hours ago I posted a pattern on Ravelry for Knit and Crocheted Sponges. They are very basic - very quick - very easy. I almost didn't post the pattern because there really is nothing to them. You make a rectangle (or 2) fold/sew to make it double thickness and call it a day.
Since I posted the pattern over 100 people have downloaded it. I guess people really do want simple ideas.
I've been using mine for over a year and throwing them in the wash weekly. They hold up well and save a lot of paper towels.
One thing I discovered this weekend taking the pictures was how terrible the deck looks. I really need to get it painted before fall. But - back to the sponges. You may notice the rust yarn. It's from the last ball of 20 year old Sugar N' Cream that I made the Rust Goes Green market bag from.
The blue ones are from a while ago. There's no pattern for the cloth, I just started knitting and let a pattern appear as it felt like it.
This time around when finishing the sponges I did a simple whip stitch around pieces instead of the chain stitch (crochet) and 3 needle bind off (knit) I did around the entire sponge the first time around.
