Some people love knitting socks. I love knitting dishcloths. Sock knitters and dish cloth knitters have probably more in common than you may think. When knitting dishcloths, you have the possibility to try new stitch patterns and different textures out on a very little surface.
Moreover, there are plenty of nice cotton yarns out there.
Grab your favourite cotton yarn. Either worsted weigth or fingering (just 2-strand it).
This pattern stitch features a simple but stunning slip-stitch technique that adds volume to the fabric, thus making this dish cloth very absorbent.
