The Milk and Sugar Dishcloth is a fun knit dishcloth pattern using the seersucker stitch with garter edging. Its a really squishy absorbent dishcloth! The term ‘seersucker’ originates from the Persian phrase shir-o-shakhar, meaning “milk and sugar” for the alternating textures, hence the name! These dishcloths are super quick to make and practical in your home/kitchen. I love that these dishcloths are a great way to add long lasting, quality products to your home! You can pop them in the washer and dryer and they will last for years! These are knit using the soft, squishy Knitpicks Dishie yarn, or any other worsted weight cotton yarn you can achieve gauge with!

Approx. 7.5 x 7.5 inches / 19 x 19 cm
Can easily adjust size if desired!

~18 sts x 24 rows equals a 4x4 inch square/10x10 cm in seersucker stitch after blocking

Any worsted weight cotton yarn that you can get gauge with.
I used Knitpicks Dishie yarn (190 yds per 100 g ball) in Clarity.
