Free Dishcloth Pattern: Woven Lines

I’m particularly excited about the free dishcloth pattern this week!  I was thinking about a scarf pattern I did several years ago, a two color striped scarf where each color was 1 row – to achieve this, you slid the project back & forth on circular needles to pick up the working yarn. I started playing around with some Dishie one day, trying to recreate it (I can’t find the pattern anywhere, though this one is similar), playing with different stitch patterns, and I really loved how it looked in seed stitch. So here’s the Woven Lines Dishcloth!


This was such an easy, mindless knit; I worked on it while watching a couple of movies one rainy afternoon.  Seed stitch isn’t everyone’s favorite stitch, but I love it – I’ve always found the repetition comforting.  Sliding the work back & forth along the needles was rather fun too.  Plus very few ends to weave in!


And best of all, it’s completely reversible, which is always nice for dishcloths!

    I love the seed stitch too!! I am working on another dishcloth for my daughter’s xmas gift to her teacher where the borders are done is a seed stitch. It was the first time I had ever come across it. I LOVED it and continuously think about adding it to other dishclothes that do not have a border. Thank you!! I can’t wait to try this one!
