Hello Kitty Dishcloth Pattern


I used a size 8 needle with Peaches n’ Cream cotton yarn. A solid color will definitely show the pattern better. If there are mistakes in the written pattern, please let me know and I will be sure to update the pattern.

CO 46
Knit 2 rows of garter stitch. K3 at the beginning and end of rows.

    I just knitted this and it seems as if some rows are missing for the top of the head. Have you knit this up yet?

  3. Awesome pattern, thanks so much

    MsKityCity is right there are about 10 rows missing from the top... to best of my abilities... here is what I did based on the grid.

    "Hello, Kitty" is a copyrighted design. Unless you are paying royalties to the owner of the copyright, you are stealing intellectual property.Even if you are giving it away, it is still stealing. I think it's great to come up with patterns, but it they are not original designs, you should be careful or you might get sued. I apologize for the harshness of the message, but it is true.

  5. I'm not sure that you are completely correct.

    I believe that you are fine creating and posting a Hello Kitty inspired pattern, so long as it is for personal "free" use, and you aren't charging for it.

    It is if you charge money for the pattern that you can get into trouble.

    Hello! I love this pattern. I did notice something on Row it supposed to be:
    R2:P10, P1, K6, P2, K1, P2, K2, P6, K1, P9
    Instead of
    R2:P10, P1, K6, P2, K1, P2, K2, P6, K1, K9
    Just checking as I am currently working on this for a friend. Thank you so much and take care!

    1. Did you ever get a reply?? Row 1 is the same way..why not put k20 instead of k10, k10 makes no sense..or fix's written like this throughout the pattern, can someone clarify?

  7. I believe Stephenie is correct. As long as you are not financially gaining from someone else's copyrighted design, it should be fine. If she was charging for the distribution of the pattern, then she would need to pay royalties.

  8. Can you tell me how to follow the grid. I have been a knitter for a few years but have never done anything like this before..

    Thank you!!

    Thank you thank you for the Hello Kitty Cloth. One of my granddaughters loves Hello Kitty. Happy Holidays 2012!

    When you added rows 35-44, I think you added one stitch (now 47 instead of 46)

  13. Hi do all the corrections in the pattern work out ok, as I wish to knit this pattern and make a blanket for the RSPCA.
