Knitted Dish Cloth

Knit dish cloths are always in demand and I have had several people ask me to make them some. If you know some basic knitting techniques, this whips up very quickly.

I got this great pattern from my very crafty and handy mother-in-law. She has been making these for years and I was fortunate enough to get this pattern and a tutorial from her two years ago. Now when I do one, I have the pattern memorized because it’s that simple.

Use one skein of any cotton yarn.
Needles: 1 pair 6.0 mm (US 10 / UK 4)

Instructions:

Cast on 4 sts.
Row 1: K across
Row 2: K2, yo, K to end of row
Repeat row 2 until there are 43 sts on needle
Next decrease rows: K1, K 2 tog, yo, K 2 tog, K to end
Continue to decrease rows until there are 4 sts remaining on the needle
Cast off remaining sts.

Abbreviations:
K – knit
sts – stitches
tog – together
yo – yarn over
