One of the greatest joys in knitting is being able to make something that can be used and enjoyed by ourselves and gifted to and appreciated by others. Handknit dishcloths were commonplace years ago and now serve as a wonderful way to reduce waste in our homes and also to learn or master new stitches and knitting techniques. I started this collection of patterns as a monthly club to bring knitters together and over the past year I have received so many heartwarming messages from knitters who felt joy in being able to create and gift or donate handknit cloths. Others wrote me to say that knitting the dishcloths helped keep their hands (and minds) busy during a difficult year. Some used the patterns to introduce the craft to children, grandchildren and friends. My hope is that these patterns will bring you much joy as you knit them too!
