A colourful yet simple slip stitch pattern to make the most of leftover dishcloth cotton. It uses fewer than 22 yards (20 metres) of each colour. Pattern is worked over 4 rows on a multiple of 2 sts + 1, so the size is easily amended.

The colours are changed every 2 rows, with the unused yarn carried up the side.

This is a modified version of a two-coloured pattern I came across in a stitch dictionary. It creates a texture that’s fab for scrubbing those pots and pans.
