Knit Dish Cloth Pattern

Today I’m posting a free pattern for an easy beginner knit dishcloth.  Have you even been invited over to someone’s home and wondered what kind of gift to bring for the hostess?  This rustic chic dishcloth would be the perfect solution to that problem.  Dishcloths are quick and rewarding projects that are also inexpensive since they are smaller and do not require too much yarn.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this dishcloth below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

The key to creating these luxurious washcloths is the yarn.  My absolute favourite cotton yarn is Knit Picks Dishie Yarn.  The colours are so lovely and the quality is incredible for the price.
