I find knitting to be very relaxing, especially when it is a simple, repetitive pattern. Several times a year, I add to my supply of dishcloths (and my Mom's as well!). Knit dishcloths are the only ones that I use, so I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite patterns with y'all.
The pattern used for these dishcloths is the Seed Stitch Pattern.
What You'll Need:
US Size 9 Knitting Needles
Needle for weaving in the ends
Cast On 33.
Row 1: K1, P1, K1 - continue in this pattern to end of row
Row 2-50: Repeat Row 1
Weave in ends
So easy! I do 50 rows and it comes out square. Adjust the number of stitches CO if you want, just make sure, for the Seed Stitch, that you have an odd number of stitches.
If you need some help with the knitting stitches, go to Knitting Help. They have great videos that show you all you need to know; cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch, etc.
Here are a few photos of the ones I've made so far:
|I LOVE lots of color in my dishcloths. May as well make washing the dishes as exciting as possible! : -)|
|The seed stitch is great, because you have little "scrubbie" bumps all over the dishcloth.|
Come join in the fun at these fabulous parties!
