Here at Knit Picks we’ve been challenged to design dishcloths for the 52 weeks of dishcloths - fun free patterns in a wonderful collection. This week it was my turn. I’ve always leaned toward texture, and this time was no different! It’s a combination of simple stitches that creates wonderful texture and delicious color.
Are you enjoying our 52 Weeks of Dishcloths? We’re all having so much fun coming up with these new patterns! We’re up to week 9 – and you can find all of them so far right here:
52 Weeks of Dishcloth patterns
Pattern number 9 is the very cute Starflower Dishcloth by Kerin!
It’s not often that I really dig making dishcloths. It’s something I do to replace the previous victim of some kitchen disaster knowing as I’m knitting that this new creation is doomed to a slow, cheese-encrusted death over the next few months until it’s replaced. That being said, the super simple stitch pattern that I came up with for the Reversible Pips Dishcloth is so satisfying and easy to memorize that I just want to sit down and make a huge pile of them over one weekend for FUN!
We are officially in week 7 in our 52 Weeks of Dishcloths and my contribution is the Quadrant Dishcloth! It’s all garter stitch, which makes it the perfect project for a lazy weekend afternoon with your favorite movie playing in the background. Plus, the stripes are a great excuse to dig through your stash in search of leftover bits of yarn.
During this time of year, with the days grey & dreary, I want a little cheer in my household. So I decided that I needed a bright & happy dishcloth, that way at least doing boring things like dishes is a little more exciting!
I’m so happy to finally share my first contribution to our 52 Weeks of Dishcloths Knitalong – the Wavy Chevrons Dishcloth! My general rules for dishcloths are that the pattern has to work up quickly and be easy to memorize. And this simple crocheted chevron pattern fits the bill perfectly.
A new week, and a new dishcloth for our 52 Weeks of Dishcloths extravaganza! This is my first contribution: Bee’s Knees.
Say “hullo” to the second installment of our Dishcloth-along! The Ridge Washcloth features springy rows of garter stitch in Comfy Sport.This is a simple pattern with a four row repeat that’s easy to memorize and quick to knit.
Happy New Year!
How many of you knit or crochet dishcloths? We know they are pretty popular – all of us here make our own dishcloths all the time, usually practicing a fun new stitch or technique. And I find that all of my handmade dishcloths last work so much better than ones found in stores.
So with that in mind, for 2014 we thought we’d have a fun little Dishcloth-along! Every week, we will be posting a brand new dishcloth pattern – for free! Each pattern is written by the Knit Picks staff and at the end of the year, we have something special planned for them. (it’s a secret for now, but I think you’ll enjoy it!)
So first up is the dishcloth pattern I make all the time for myself – Orbital.
