Hand Knit Dish Cloth Pattern

IMG_5073
These are my all time favorite dish cloths! My sister had made me a pair and I absolutely love them. They are great for scrubbing counters and dishes. It’s an easy knitting project you can do when relaxing and watching TV. My favorite type of yarn to use is Sugar n’ Cream 100% Cotton. They have a great variety of colors.

This is a very common pattern. I love how easy these are to make!

*You will need Sugar’n Cream 100% Cotton yarn (1 ball will make 2-3 dishcloths, depending on how tight you knit and what size needle you use)

*Knitting Needles size 6-9 US (4 – 5 1/2 mm), I like using size 8 US (5 mm)
K – knit
YO – Yarn Over (to increase)
k2Tog – Knit 2 Together (to decrease)

Cast on 4 stitches
k 1 row
Next row, k2, yo, k2
Next row, k2, yo, k to end of row
Continue to repeat the (k2, yo, k until end of row) until you have a total of 43 stitches on the needle (If you want a smaller dish cloth do Less)
Next row, k1, k2Tog, yo, k2Tog, k to end of row
Continue to do the (k1, k2Tog, yo, k2Tog, k to end of row), decreasing each row until you have 5 stitches are left on the needle
Next row, k2, k2Tog, k1.
Bind off the 4 stitches
Weave your end in.

Yay you have a beautiful finished dishcloth!
