Shelley's Watermelon Dishcloth

I'll blame the dodginess of this photo on my iPhone, shall I?
Shelley loves watermelon.  Watermelon anything.  So when I came across this dishcloth pattern I just had to knit it for her!

I am not sure if Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton was the right choice for a dishcloth as it is so soft and slightly fluffy.  Have you had success with this yarn for dishcloths?  Please tell as I don't want to keep going on my dishcloth bender if they will all fall apart or leave a fluff trail.

Perhaps as a washcloth it will be ok.

Ravelled here

Have you knitted/crocheted a watermelon themed item?  I'd love to see it!



  1. This is too cute. I am sure Shelley will keep it - its too good to use.

  2. Uhmazing! LOVE it. Just so sweet Fiona. No doubt it will be well received.

  3. Oh my goodness, that is just so cute!! Must put that one on my list. I haven't tried the Bendigo cotton for dishcloths. I an curious as to how they go too. I guess you can only give it a wash and see. I am using a brand from Yarn Over and it is a little coarse, as were the Sugar and Cream brand I used previously. Though they are definitely up to the job and wash up nicely.

  4. Cute dishcloth. I was actually just thinking about ordering some Bendigo cotton to make some dishcloths and facecloths so would be interested in hearing how this dishcloth fares after washing/using.

  5. That is just too cute! I have no idea whether Bendigo yarn is suitable, and I've never made a dishcloth before, but I think I might have to now. A Dishcloth Bender, haha!

  6. FI FI I LOVE IT!!!! But there is no way I'm ever putting it in water haha! Looks WAY TOO nice to be thrown into water! PLUS I don't do dishes anyway - thats Rich's domain :-P he he he!
    Thank you so much - It's beautiful! xxxx

  7. P.S. Thanks for linking to my blog - I went from 0 views to 22 today! YAY!!!! HAHA!!! xxx

  8. No experience but so very cute. xx
