Knit Dishcloth Pattern

 

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.

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.

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.

  3. Hi…just wondering how well these towels dry dishes? Or are they mostly for show? They are beautiful. I find even when I’ve knitted dishcloths, they are so hard to wring all the water out of and take hours to ever dry out.

    1. I use them to dry dishes! I love the Knitpicks Dishie yarn because I find its more absorbent than most cotton yarns.

  4. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your website.
    It looks like some of the text in your posts are
    running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this
    happen previously. Many thanks
