Maaike and I are going to see the Yarn Harlot at WEBS this weekend, and decided to keep up the tradition of knitters bringing her washcloths. We worked up some ideas and I quickly designed a cloth for Montreal and a cloth for Quebec. As a final touch, I also came up with a Habs cloth (the Yarn Harlot is from Toronto…and the Habs are doing better than the Maple Leafs this year). These cloths were designed by me with help/inspiration by Maaike.
I was going to wait to knit up a sample in all sizes before publishing, but in the spirit of last night’s game 7 win by the Canadians, I’m going to offer a rough cut of the pattern here so you can get your Habs fever on, knitting-style!
(about 4.5″ x 6″)
(just like the small size but with more space around the logo, adding about an inch to all directions)
(bigger than the others and has the words “GO HABS GO” across the top and bottom)
ETA1- I made a slight change to the pattern (added 2 rows in the red section below the C) for all sizes. The new files were uploaded and the links changed at 9:45am EST on April 23 2008. If you downloaded the files before that date please download the latest version. Thank you!
ETA2- I am aware that there was a problem downloading the files earlier. I have fixed this with the hosting people, and there shouldn’t be any more problems accessing the patterns. If you have any problems, please email me!

How’s THAT for team spirit! SO much better than torching a police car…

Very cool! I made a couple dish cloths this weekend … hearts and a maple leaf.
