The Cables & Lace Dishcloth came to be when I was learning some Japanese knitting stitches. This particular stitch really called out to me. This wonderful stitch requires some concentration, but is not nearly as difficult as it looks.

The yarn used is Cottonsoft DK from King Cole. It’s a lovely 100% cotton yarn that is a light #3 / DK weight yarn. It is wonderful to work with & you can make a couple dishcloths with only one skein!

The pattern is available to view for free on my website that is ad supported. You can purchase here from Ravelry if you prefer an ad-free pdf, that pattern includes the written directions, a chart, printable gift wrappers, gift tags and a row checklist.

This pattern has been tested. Thank you to my amazing testers for helping me with this pattern!

I am a King Cole Brand Ambassador and this design is part of our ongoing collaboration.
