I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not actually a very confident knitter, I find it rather difficult and if I make a mistake I generally have to unravel the whole whatever it is I am knitting and start again. Anyone who ever gets anything knitted by me generally knows it has taken a month of Sundays and much concentration. But I really do love the act of knitting, and I try to knit as fancily as I can (desperately trying to cover up the fact I am not a good knitter.)

Anyway, this is a pretty simple tutorial for a dish cloth that I’m sure will help to make washing dishes that much less of a chore. It’s a mix of garter stitch, stocking stitch and moss stitch in the middle.


A ball of knitting cotton (sometimes called craft cotton)

Knitting needles (I used 4mm Brittany Knitting needles)

Stitch markers (it gets a bit confusing when you are knitting the heart so I find these invaluable)

The full pattern can be found on my blog.
