I Am Of Two Minds On The Matter – Cotton Dishcloths


S-o-o-o-o . . . Do you knit and/or crochet???  What are your favorite dishcloths?  Me?  I once was a die-hard crochet dishcloth fanatic.  That is, until I started knitting.  I have fallen in love with Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloths.  I actually have yet to try any other pattern, I am so happy with this one.

I came across a search in this blog post from Cotton Cloud’s Blog.

Pattern Search Results for “cloth”: Lion Brand Yarn Company

I am drawn to this lovely lacy Rocky Point Beach Washcloth

I love these plain-jane ones too! The garter stitch nubbies are good srubbies. 😀 Cumulus Cloths Pattern

This washcloth / dishcloth is a great beginner project. Made with a simple seed stitch, it is so much nicer and thicker than store-bought dishrags!

I’m just fishing for some opinions.  Being fairly new to knitting, I think perhaps these will be good practice.  Don’t you think?

Of course, we don’t want to leave out my own humble pattern.  Here’s the link to an almost perfect picture pattern (I must remedy that) Super Simple Hexagonal Cotton Dishcloth Picture Tutorial

The best thing about handmade dishcloths, they make a great last minute gift.  Pair a couple with a fabulous handmade soap from your local Farmer’s Market . . .

  1. Never made a dish cloth in my life so cannot really comment but do think they make good practice 🙂

  2. When it comes to dishmclothes I generally crochet because it’s usually faster. Both are acceptable so I think it’s which ever one you feel like at the time.
