Zig Zag Dishcloth - Free Pattern from

I am personally a big fan of cables on anything and everything I knit these days. And this stitch pattern is perfect for dishcloths – unlike many cable patterns, this one doesn’t pull in as much so it keeps its nice square shape. The texture is great too – I can see myself using this pattern over and over again for scrubbing those dishes. And since it uses Dishie, it makes an all around perfect dishcloth pattern.

    Would like to know how many yards in a ball/skein in the samplers. Makes it hard to determine if there is enough to make any one thing!

      Hi Cheryl! All of our yarn samplers include full sized skeins of each yarn, so it depends on which yarn sampler you are looking at.
