Sharing from: 52 Weeks of Free Dishcloth Patterns from KnitPicks.com


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!

Oh my goodness. I did not pick up all the strands. Guess what. It now belongs in my kitchen instead of the gift pile. Lucky me. 😀

 

Here are some other dishcloth patterns via 52 Weeks of Free Dishcloth Pattern from KnitPicks.com I have yet to try . . .

The Picnic Basket Dishcloth has great texture by using the raised double crochet. Switching from front to back in sections and then back to front gives the look of a woven basket. This is a fun crochet that creates a great textured dishcloth and a chance to practice a crochet stitch that isn’t as common as most. This pattern, with a change in yarn, would be easily expanded to create a blanket with a great drape.

Wavy Chevron Crochet Dishcloth: Striped or solid, the crocheted chevron is a classic pattern that works up quickly and is easy to memorize – the perfect recipe for a satisfying dishcloth. The chevron pattern also builds on the beginning crocheter’s skill set with double crochets, increases and decreases. The pattern includes two sizes as well as written and charted instructions.

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.
