lily barnLily’s Sugar’n Cream yarn is a classic kitchen cotton and one that a lot of people use to knit washcloths, dishcloths and other durable kitchen and home items.

Lily is celebrating summer with eight weeks of free dishcloth patterns for knitters and crocheters with fun themes. This week marks the kickoff of the celebration, with the theme of Fun at the Farm. The knit washcloth is a barn and the crocheted one has the coloring of a cow (the pattern link is to a PDF).

It’s mostly a stockinette rectangle with a triangle worked at the top. The roof and barn doors are worked in chain stitch after the knitting is done.

Lily is also celebrating the summer by giving away the yarn for each week’s project to one of their Facebook fans. The giveaway is open to residents of the United States and Canada only.
