A Dishcloth Pattern

Posted by Ali G on Saturday, 27 September, 2008

I’ve been adding more of my stash of cotton to Ravelry, and figured it must be time to knit another dishcloth. This is a modified version of a two-coloured pattern I came across in a stitch dictionary. It’s a good way to use up leftovers, and creates a texture that’s fab for scrubbing those pots and pans.

Pattern is worked over 4 rows on a multiple of 2 sts + 1.

Finished Size
Approximately 8! (20 cm) square.

Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Solids [100% cotton; 80 yd/73 m]; Soft Violet (A), White (B), and Hunter Green (C).
I used 20 yds (17.5 m) of A, and 16 yds (14.5 m) each of B and C.

Size 7 (4.5 mm), or size needed to obtain a fabric you like.

It’s a dishcloth, so gauge is not too important. I got 19.5 stitches per 4” (10 cm) in pattern, and before blocking. Of course, I’d only ever block a dishcloth if it were a gift for someone.

s1p: slip one stitch purlwise
yb: take yarn to the back of work
yf: bring yarn to the front of work

Use the 3 colours in sequence, working 2 rows in each one.

CO 39 stitches with yarn A using the continental long-tail cast-on, and knit one row.

Row 1: K1, *s1p, k1; repeat from * to end.

Row 2: K1, *yf, s1p, yb, k1; repeat from * to end.

Rows 3 and 4: K.

Repeat rows 1-4 until desired size is achieved, ending with a row 4. Cast off and weave in ends.

Now, go and wash the dishes! 😛
