Awwwwwwwww. Too bad my kids aren't little anymore. That is too cute.

Someday, when I have time (roflmao) I am so going to knit up all the cloths I think are cute and put them in a hope chest (yeah right) But it's a good thought.

I happen to stumble across your site from a list and was very excited to find the capterpillar cloth...a neice just had a baby and her shower was the Hungry Capterillar theme!! So now I am going to make this. Thanks so much.

Thanks so much for the fun and easy pattern! I am really excited at how it is turning out. As a beginning knitter, this pattern is perfect for making a cute wash cloth.

Hi! I started to make this last night, and I am halfway through and the vertical purls on the knit side that are vertical lines of the body, are not popping up, they are falling behind. But the horizontal purls are popping, so I have a lot of horizontal lines, "not connected" ton each other. Will this change after I wash and dry it? I think I will finish it anyway and give it a try, but I wanted to see if you experienced this. Thanks!

harmony parent,
sorry this is getting to you so late, when i was doing mine it did the same thing to me but after i washed and dried it... it laid down and did what the picture shows

I just knitted this up for a dear friend who is having her first baby on Monday. It is gorgeous, cannot wait to hear her reaction to it. Super fast pattern too, I managed it in a couple of evenings, in between attending to my 3 month old.

what does kw2 mean

amy-lynne......... said...

anonymous, i dont see where there is a kw2... in this pattern it would be a knit and the w would be a typo... where did you see that in here?... i am not seeing it... so i can change it please

Jennifer Jackson said...

I'm a beginner knitted, so this question may seem silly. I see the directis for rows 1-6, and then the rest of the directions are for the odd number rows only, what about the even rows? What do you do with those?

amy-lynne......... said...

hey jennifer, not a problem asking and it not silly, we were all new at some point too... even rows are a knit the entire row and odd are pattern rows...

example:
row 7 - pattern row
row 8 - knit entire row
row 9 - pattern row
row 10 - knit entire row

if you have any other question please feel free to ask and i will help any way and as soon as i can... have a great day/night.
