Why You Should Knit Not Another Dishcloth
A few years ago, dishcloths were all the rage and I felt a little silly launching yet another dishcloth pattern into the world. How many dishcloth patterns do we really need?
Well, it turns out we need a lot and we can always use one more.
If you haven’t already discovered how superior handknitted dishcloths are to any other kind, you are in for a treat.
The pattern is awesome in so many ways:
- It’s designed to really help you scrub things. Be it in the kitchen or the bathroom, this dishcloth will help you get things clean.
- It’s economic and a great stash-buster. One dishcloth only takes 55 m / 60 yd to make so you can use up leftovers or get several out of one ball of yarn.
- It’s beginner-friendly. If you can cast on, knit, purl and cast off, this pattern is just up your alley.
- It’s perfect autopilot knitting. If you’re a more seasoned knitter, this pattern lets you knit without looking in no time, so you can carry a conversation, watch your favourite TV-show or knit in public and show off your skills.
- It’s my current best selling knitting pattern and with so many people loving this pattern, you can’t go wrong.
- It’s now free! If you want to easily print the pattern you can still purchase it by clicking the button below.
