Picot Swirl Cloth

This is the beginning of the Picot Swirl Cloth designed by Tea. I love the round cloths and this one is a little different from the ones I have knitted in the past. Tea has this pattern posted on her blog to share. It's here if you'd like to see it.... http://foothillsofthegreatsmokymountains.blogspot.com/
The round cloths seem to knit up so much faster and I do love the "instant gratification". I bought this ball of Sugar & Cream because I really liked the colors...had no idea what I would use it for at the time though. It's called Jewels. I so love this pattern and as a bonus, I learned something new today. YAY! I didn't know how to do a picot edge til now. Thanks Tea for sharing the pattern. I love it!


Just a little close-up of the picot edge for ya. I think I like this better than the other ones with the pointy edges. I will probably have to go up a needle size on my next one. Being a tight knitter, mine is coming out a little smaller than it was designed to be. I should have known this before I started but I have something on my 8's and I just couldn't wait.

Melanie, your Picot Swirl is gorgeous! I HAVE to find some of that Jewel yarn. I hope Hobby Lobby has it. Big, big thanks for all your nice comments about the pattern. I have a slightly lacy version that I'm tweaking for release next week. :)

I don't remember if I found it at HL or at Michaels. I'm thinking it was Michaels. I can't wait to see the lacy version!
