Scrap Kitchen Set
This Scrap Kitchen Set is the product of my drawer of yarn balls! Every so often, when I can no longer close it, I browse through the drawer where I keep leftover balls of yarn and try to figure out how to use up scraps for something useful. This time when I took a look, I found several colors of worsted cotton that I thought looked well together. Kitchen sets are always fun to make and useful too, so that’s what they became.
The dish towel and dish cloth are the same stitch pattern with a slight variation and I think it is pretty with a hint of texture. I often like to play with slight changes to the same stitch pattern to see what result I get. I liked this combination. While the look is almost identical, the dishcloth is a bit thicker than the dish towel and so I think perfect for scrubbing and cleaning. The trivet is a simple variation on a granny square that I think brings all the colors together. I use these under hot things on my table. I think they are prettier than the metal or wicker variety widely available.
All of these pieces were designed in #4 cotton worsted yarn, such as Lily Sugar n Cream, Red Heart Creme de la Creme or Premier Home Cotton. These work up super fast and can be made in as many colors as you like!

Beautiful set! Can you tell me what colors were used? Thank you!
