I’ve recently learned how to knit and I wanted to share this super easy dishcloth pattern with you! Experienced knitters are probably familiar with this pattern but if any of you are new to knitting, you might find it useful.
This dishcloth knits up very quickly and works up with a pretty edging to it. The instructions are so easy that you won’t have to refer to the pattern much at all once you get started.
Make sure you use cotton yarn for dishcloths; it holds in water better than acrylic yarns. Use 4mm of 4.5mm needles.
Cast on 4 (I use the long tail method)
Row 1: knit 4
Row 2: knit 2, yarn over, knit to the end of the row
Rrepeat row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needles
Row 3: knit 1, knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row
Repeat row 3 until you have 4 stitches on the needles
Cast off and weave in ends.
That’s it! Happy knitting!
*I’ve seen this pattern all over the place and it’s so basic that I can’t really credit it to the original designer, but I did want to be clear that I’m only sharing a pattern that I like to use. I didn’t create this pattern myself.
