Pattern Description:

Knit up a hanging dish towel with matching dishcloth!

A hot version of something hilariously lame? Enter the hanging dish towel. Yes, you could just buy a set of boring old dish towels and hang them on your oven handle, but you can't pick out an awesome button if you do that!

With four different colors and four different stitch patterns, this silly piece of kitchen art is as fun and fast to knit as it is useful. The only problem is you won't want to get it dirty.

And let's face it, this is the hottest dishcloth you've ever seen. Worked corner to corner in color and textured stripes, if a dishcloth can be a showstopper this is it.

The Diagonal Stripes Dishcloth pattern is a tricky one, I'm not going to lie. There is a lot going on and a lot you have to figure out on your own. But I know you're up for the challenge!

  • Cloth is 10" square
  • Towel is 9"x10" with 5 1/2" hanger

Materials:
