Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You need to know how to knit and purl.

Pattern Description:

This Eco-Friendly pattern is for 6 different dishcloths - a great way for knitters to learn new stitches, save money on paper towels & help save the planet too. The pattern is 8 pages long and filled with pictures and information.

These dishcloths are great as holiday gifts throughout the year. I love to use dishcloths in seasonal colors to make the holidays more fun.

The pattern is:

> Great for beginners and experienced knitters.

> Quick to knit.

> Includes color photos of each stitch.

> Gives step-by-step directions in English not "Knit-speak".

> Includes charts for each stitch.

> Includes tutorials on making dishcloths durable, laundering them, explaining the stitches, and suggesting other ways to use the stitches for garments.

> Makes perfect size cloths for doing dishes and cleaning counters.

> Produces durable, machine washable dishcloths or washcloths.

> Uses less than 6 ounces of worsted weight cotton for all 6 cloths.

> Costs very little to make the cloths.

> Takes very little time to knit.

> Ends excessive use of wasteful, expensive paper towels.

> Includes email access to the designer (me) for any questions that may arise.

All of my patterns are Teaching Patterns. I carefully proofread them many times to make sure they are accurate and easy to follow. I've been selling patterns for years and never had anyone write me with problems.

*** The big stack of 24 dishcloths were all made with Dishcloth Design #1 in this 6 cloth pattern. They were made in a week or so by my Facebook Friend and Customer Kath, a new knitter. Everyone is amazed that she could make them so fast, but as she said, the first cloth pattern is Really Easy!!! I love the colors she chose. Now she'll almost never need to buy paper towels! Bravo Kath! ***
