I love ‘take-along’, almost mindless knitting. And, dishclothes pretty much fit the bill. This first pattern I am sharing has to be one of my very, very favorites. It uses slip stitches to make up this visually delightful (and very sturdy, I might add) dishcloth. It is expecially great if you are not the biggest fan of purling, because all the slip stitches are worked on the purl side!!!
FIREFLY DISHCLOTH: The pattern of this dishcloth evokes summer nights when fireflies fill the backyard and housework is done lazily. Its slip stitch pattern is easy to complete, with satisfying results. Only about half the stitches are purled!
I was inspired to start my own Firefly Dishcloth. But, if you look closely, I already made a couple of booboos. Not frogging it!
Here are some other dishcloth patterns via 52 Weeks of Free Dishcloth Pattern from KnitPicks.com I have yet to try . . .
Sooo…I found this post patiently waiting in my list of drafts. Long forgotten. I am now inspired to knit up some new dishclothes for my gift giving stash. I hope this inspires you as well! And, if you didn’t know??? I love to make DISHCLOTHS! Knit are my faves.
