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.

    Your dishcloths are really cute. I’ve never mastered knitting but I do love to sit with a ball of yarn and a crochet hook! 🙂
