I use these dishcloths all the time, they are really awesome! They can be knitted up in no time. My mom use to make these up by the dozens for all her friends who kept asking her for more.

You end up with a square cloth.

Use a needle sized 6 - 9.

You can use the big ball of Bernat Cotton or one
called Sugar' n Creme, its your choice just as long as its cotton.

Instructions:

Cast On 4

k 1 row

Next row, k2, yo, k2

Next row, k2, yo, k to end of row

Continue to repeat the [k2, yo, k until end of row] until you have a total of 45 stitchess on the needle

Next row, k1, k2Tog, yo, k2Tog, k to end of row

Continue to do the [k1, k2Tog, yo, k2Tog, k to end of row], decreasing each row until you have 5 stitches are left on the needle

Next row,k2, k2Tog, k1.

Bind off the 4 sts.

Abbreviations:

CO - Cast On
K - knit
YO - Yarn Over (to increase)
k2Tog - Knit 2 Together (to decrease)
st - stitch (sts is plural stitches)

These dishcloths are awesome, they are durable and last for a very long time !

Re: Knitted Dishcloths
You know my mom tried to teach me knitting and I was able to get the basics but thats about it. I am just about good enough to do these dishcloths. She use to sit and watch tv and just knit away and everyone would ask her to make them some. She use to make so many awesome things from sweaters all the way to some very cool crocheted hand towels that went over the handle of your oven. If I can find that pattern I will post it here. Now that she is gone I am going to have to seriously sit down and try, these are really awesome.

So I might be joining you in getting that Knitting for Dummies Book Laughing!!

Re: Knitted Dishcloths
I would love to learn how to knit. Some of our local craft stores give free lessons. Maybe we should all look into that. I can crochet, so maybe if you find that dishtowel pattern. MAYBE i can try to fumble through that.

Re: Knitted Dishcloths

Oh this brings back memories of my grandma she was such a huge knitter and she taught me how, she's been dead a long time and i'll be damned if I can remember how, but those instructions sound so familiar, I wonder if I'd still have it Thinking
