This is not really a full pattern but a way to use the Pi Shawl formula to make a dishcloth.

It is not as bulky as a 9” square dishcloth but very comfortable to work with. Plus the striping cotton works very well with this design.

Also, as a big plus, you can actually make two cloths out of 1 ball of cotton.

A note on needles: You can use 1 long circular needle as a magic loop; two circulars; or double pointed. You can view a video on YouTube on how us use a magic loop here. I used a size 7 for mine, but feel free to go up or down in accordance with your personal tension.

This will require a bit of blocking because the center will have a tendency to pop out a tiny bit. I don’t recommend doing the cloth in all stockinette since, as customary with stockinette it will want to curl up or be too dense to lie flat.
