It may almost be summer, but it sure hasn't felt like it the past few days. Instead of being sunny, it's been cold and wet, leaving many of us trapped inside with our activities rained out. Such days are the perfect time knit something fast and easy, something you can pick up and finish within a few hours while you're waiting for the sun to (hopefully) re-emerge. Something like... a dishcloth!
We've got a wonderful rainbow of dishcloth cottons at the Knit & Stitch, each at only $2.99 a ball. Once you grab one, all you need is a nice pattern, and you'll have one knit up in no time - and maybe, just maybe, the sun will be out by the time you're done. Here are three of our favorite quick, easy and free dishcloth patterns!
The Almost Lost Washcloth
This washcloth is simply beautiful, with its circular shape and points running along the outer edge, and it's perfect to show off a variegated yarn. What's more, it's also an extremely easy knit - garter stitch all the way through!
Chinese Waves Dishcloth
Using only knit and slipped stitches, this pattern creates a sturdy, textured dishcloth that'll hold up for years of regular use.
This dishcloth features a fun, elegant wave pattern, created using only knit and purl stitches.
