Tawashi desu

tawashi Have you moticed how quickly dishwashing sponges fall apart ? Tired of always buying new ones, I decided to jump into the homemade dishcloth bandwagon and selected this one s my first try :Tawashi.

: Tawashi by Pierrot - see PDF file here
Crochet hook : 5 mm
Yarn : acrylic, aran weight
Time : under 40 min included hesitating between yarn colours, selecting hook etc…
Design : simple and clever, the texture is soft and interesting, too soft for my frying pans though, I may resort to bulkier yarn and smaller hook for them!

What I did :

  1. Chain 15, 1 row of sc, 19 rows of back loop sc increasing on one edge of the item and decreasing on the other edge, thus creating a slented shape.

  2. Slip stitch to create a cylinder, finish off leaving a 25cm tail, sew along one edge then gather to close, repeat for the other edge.

  3. Flatten , sew the chore and chain 20, slst 2 on first chains to create hanging loop.

I was just thinking that I needed to add sponges to my shopping list, but you've just reminded me that I have some of these Tawashi as well as some traditional square dishcloths that I made a few months ago. I'm off to dig them out, though I have to say that the children have gotten quite attached to the multi-colored Tawashi and play with them as with a soft ball!! I may just have to use the square dishcloths for the washing up and leave the others to my children.

  • Crocheted!

  • Is it knitted? Nope! Crocheted! Crochet isn't just for grannies, doilies and floppy funky scarves. I am - fairly - under 50, I have a crochet hook and a yarn ball handy in my purse and I like decorating my shoulders better than my sofa.
