Very small dishrag. Possibly even wee and tiny.

Wee Tiny Dishrag

This very small dishrag was a gift for Emily, she of Dish Rag Tag and Wee Tiny Sock Swap fame. Emily knows how to jazz up a knitalong. I never thought I'd have so much fun knitting a little pink sock, or a big blue dishrag for that matter.

The dishrag above is about 4 cm (1.5 inches) square. I took the photo with a set of antique wooden toy dishes that fit inside that wooden apple. The teacups are only about 1 cm (.5 inch) tall. Those dishes are probably my oldest toy, and have been much loved and played with. The only lost part is the lid of the teapot.

The dishrag pattern is a mini version of the Elmore-Pisgah ballband dishcloth. I used a 15 stitch cast-on. It's made of Hazel Knits artisan sock wool in Natural and Greenlake.

The wee dishrag is adorable. I may have to whip up a few as gifts and Christmas decorations. Wouldn't they be cute on a tree in your kitchen for Christmas?

Thank you for your comment on my blog about being paid for our work. I like the way you think and will use your formula to calculate my fee. Thank you.
