Free Dishcloth Pattern – Belted Stripes

I love anything with stripes and this week’s free dishcloth pattern has a unique take on them – check our Marjorie Dussaud’s Belted Stripes.


Using 2 different colors of yarn, this unusual pattern is created using slip stitches and combination of knits & purls. It’s a lot of fun and dishcloth has a great texture for scrubbing those dishes.  The reverse side looks pretty neat as well.


The color combination is endless – you could do two similar shades (as we did with Dishie Blue and Navy) or you could go with bigger contrast – I like the look of Dishie Black and Begonia for bold look and Swan and Tranquil for a softer take. Any color you choose will look fantastic!
