Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

A note from MDK: This pattern from 2008 is no longer available! We are so sorry, but it got shelved in a website redesign. We will restore it if we can but at the moment we do not know where it is hiding.

This dishcloth was inspired by the geometric patterns of 20th-century linoleum floors, which were popular through the 50s and beyond. Searching stitch dictionaries for a pattern reminiscent of linoleum tiles, I found this interlocking diamond motif in several sources.

A bonus: this is a slip-stitch pattern, so it results in a scrubby cloth with an attractive woven appearance on the wrong side. It’s quite simple to follow the row-by-row instructions, but once you get going, it’s a pleasant challenge to work this pattern from memory, following the diamonds as they expand and contract.
