Free Knitted Dishcloth Pattern

It’s a rainy day here today so I’m getting my yarn out. Knitting is something I usually do while I watch Golden Girls. I know, I sound like an old lady, but it’s what I love…

Row 2: Knit 2 , yarn over, knit the rest of the row

Repeat row 2 until you have 44 stiches

    I’ve been considering getting into crochet. And I definitely always need more kitchen clothes. This might be worth the try.

    My mother in law loves knitting and would give out her crafts to the family. I tried to learn once and it wasn’t up to par ?

    I love these! They look easy enough for a novice like me.

    Oh this almost made me cry! My great-aunt gave me a knitted wash cloth that looked just liked this a few years ago. She passed away this year and I’m so glad I have the wash cloth as a sweet remembrance of her.

      I love that you shared that memory with me. My mom taught me to knit and crochet years ago. If you ever need more dishcloths let me know. I’d be glad to make some for you although they won’t have the memories with them.

    My mom use to make these when I was younger! She passed away, and I still have a few that she made. I’m going to save this in case I want to dust off my knitting needles :).
