Dishcloth Knitting Pattern: Easy Stripes

Free Stiripes Dishcloth Knitting Pattern

As I’m sure you know by now, I love knitting and crocheting. I love pretty much anything crafting. Knitting dishcloths is one of my favorite things to do in the evening. It’s relaxing and keeps me from snacking. Yup, nighttime snacking is something I struggle with.

I’ve shared a few knitting patterns on the blog which you can see here and here. This knitting pattern is pretty simple and creates  a different look on each side of the dishcloth. Since spring is in full force here I’ve chosen some spring colors for these dishcloths.
