Always on the lookout for unusually shaped spa or dish cloths, yesterday I came across this pretty pattern. The designer, Dionn (I think), over at Sew Funky, says it works up quickly, using worsted weight cotton yarn and size 6 (US) needles (4mm).
For some time now, Knit Picks has been posting a free pattern a week for dishcloths. I generally knit the same simple pattern over and over for mine, because after a few uses, a dishcloth tends to look, well, like a used dishcloth. But some of these are pretty enough to give as gifts. I like to use a nice one to gift wrap small items like soaps or shower gel. This site contains both knit and crochet designs.
So, without the proverbial further ado, here’s the link to all these great little free patterns. (Wait, isn’t ” great little” an oxymoron?”)

Leave it to Martha Stewart and company to pretty up the humble dishcloth. Of course, she wants us to buy her new Lion Brand cotton yarn! Anyway, they’re nice, so I decided to post the pattern link. Seems to be a pretty good way to use up odds and ends…..
Just whipped up several of these and it’s fun and easy. Good pattern to do while watching a movie on TV or talking on the phone. Link to pattern below:
I love this pattern. It looks great in so many different colorways. I like to iron the finished cloth to flatten it out a bit. It drapes better that way. Size 9 (US) needles, worsted weight cotton yarn, knit on the bias.
