Knitted Dishcloths

I'm taking a break from knitting scarves to knit some dishcloths.  I have noticed lovely craft rooms in blog land.  This is mine - a TV tray table!  I don't have a designated craft room and it hasn't slowed me down one bit.  (Not that I don't envy drool over all those beautiful craft rooms that I see!)  See my Tervis glass waiting for yet another glass of tea?  I can't knit without drinking tea!  Of course, my lack of room for crafting has nothing to do with this post.  Just thought I would throw it out there! 

This particular pattern is called Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth.  You can find the pattern here.  I love using cotton dishcloths and have given many away over the years.  Once you start using these, it's hard to use anything else.  The variegated and dark green yarn is Peruvian cotton.  It's addictive once you put it in your hands and start knitting. 


  1. I started making dishcloths last year for Christmas gifts. Mine are crocheted. They were a hit so I made some for myself. I will not go back to store bought ones!

  2. I have been crocheting some dishcloths. I want to try knitting a few with the smaller rectangle loom I bought. In with our 60 skeins of yarn were several that Warren declared were "too scratchy" for hats. I told him they would be perfect for dishcloths though. Yours are lovely!

  3. Hi Susan, I don't knit but if I did, I would use that pattern. I like it a lot.
    Craft rooms are nice but I mostly use mine for storage as I like to be in the same room with my family.

  4. I love knitted dishclothes. I used to get them at Christmas from my aunt but since she passed away I have no replacements. They last and last though even with the bad stains on them so I keep using them.
