Basic dishcloth

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Learn to Knit - The basic knit stitch Link to website or photo knitting.about.com/od/learntoknit/ss/knitstitch.htm What are you most proud of? How tight and dense the knit turned out, and how sturdy the cloth feels. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Since it only uses one stitch - knit - you end up with a garter-stitched cloth. It doesn't curl on itself (like stockinette does) and it has scrubbing ridges on both sides of the cloth. :)

What you will need

  • 5 gauge (3.5 mm) knitting needles Sugar 'n Cream "Green Twists" 100% worsted cotton yarn

Q&A with artistikim

Davesmom asked:
Nice work. How many stitches on your needle for this dish cloth? I am a poor knitter as well.
artistikim answered:
I did 40, with pretty snug tension. It resulted in a cloth about 7.5 inches by 7.5 inches (19cmx19xm).
