Dirty Dishes Beware!

I am loving our new knitted dishcloths!

I made sure that Momcat had to chase the ball of yarn a bit. What can I say?

Ball of yarn + Piwacket = havoc

Momcat hasn't blocked the dishcloths yet. After she does, they'll square up nicely.

Wanna make your own?  This pattern couldn't be easier.

Use all cotton yarn (we used Sugar 'n Cream), don't worry about gauge, use size 7 or 8 needles.

Cast on 4 stitches.

Row 1: Knit 2, YO, knit the rest of the row.
Repeat Row 1 until you have 44 stitches on the needle. 

Row 2: Now you'll start decreasing. Knit 1, K2Tog, YO, K2Tog, Knit to the end of the row.

Keep repeating row 2 until you have only 4 stitches left on the needle.

Bind off, weave in the ends and you're done!

Have fun creating for 15 minutes.

Purring in the recliner,

I love home knit or crocheted dish cloths! They make great gifts--don't tell how easy they are when you give them away! Enjoy sharing your new creations!
