Staccato Dishcloth Pattern

Staccato Dishcloth Pattern

I love experimenting with interesting textures and stitch patterns – and the dishcloth is simply the ideal blank canvas for projects like these. Plus, it’s a great way to rediscover old favorites in your yarn stash, since you won’t need too much yarn to make a dishcloth.

For the Staccato Dishcloth pattern, a series of repeating and alternating slip stitches are used to create a fabric with subtle sculptural qualities. The slip stitches are also what create the slight ripple effect on the edges.


And here is what the wrong side of Staccato looks like! Wherever you see the floats of yarn are where the stitches have been slipped.
