Cotton Dishcloth Madness

13 Jun

I love making and using cotton dishcloths/washcloths. They are super simple to whip up, and I get to practice all kinds of knitting technique. I have been in a knitting funk, not being able to get to a real yarn store since we moved here to Delaware, and the yarn selection at Walmart just leaves something to be desired. But there is an abundance of cotton yarn! Here are a few of the ones I’ve finished this month:

Hand’s down the best pattern for a sturdy and simple cloth is the Grandmother’s favorite. I’ve made so many I can practically do them in my sleep! There are a number of variations on it as well.

I have a ton more dishcloth patterns “queued” on my Ravelry page (sn: bekhiann) but I am currently taking a break from them to whip up a cabled cover for my Kindle. I just mastered Judy’s Magic Cast-On and am ready to make all sorts of toe-up socks and top down hats!
