Knitting Dishcloths Free Patterns

Stack Of Dish Clothes.

Knitted Dish cloths

Knitted dishcloths in my opinion are much nicer than any I have ever bought.

If you are just learning to knit , knitting a dish cloth is the perfect place to start.

If you already have the basic knitting skills then you will find that knitting a dish cloth is really easy. Whether you are making one for yourself or as a gift. If you enjoy knitting , you will find that they can be knit very quickly . I find it to be a very satisfying and rewarding project. They can be knit up as a dishcloth or a washcloth.

Gifting And Other Purposes

They make a really darling baby shower gift or a wonderful housewarming gift as well. Depending on the pattern and yarn that is used used. A great project for the beginning knitter, however, even the most experienced knitter will enjoy making them.

It is the perfect project to have on hand. I always have a dish cloth on a pair of knitting needles . This way I can pick up where I left off and knit away at any given time.

I have found that knit and crochet dishcloths are great for cleaning surfaces as well, counters, stove tops, etc... They give that scrubability without scratching the surface..

I think now as I am retiring an old and well used dish cloth I will recycle it and use them on the floors as a mop.

Holiday Dishcloths

These knitted pattern cloths are great for St. Patrick's Day. Use them as hot pads, oven mitts, or as decorative accents. These 4-leaf clover add texture and depth to the design.

Look out little leprechauns, this Lucky Clover Dishcloth is here to stay, With a little lace detail and minty green color, this dishcloth is perfect for St, Patrick's Day.
