Good Grief! Knitted Dishcloth

Having grown up on a steady diet of Peanuts, I can’t help but see Charlie Brown’s shirt in this pattern.

It’s a simple, knit and purl, good-for-beginners cloth.

  4. Thank you so much for posting your wonderful dishcloths. I learned to knit when I was 8 or 9. ( I am 52 now) I put my knitting down for alot of years. I picked it up again about 5 yrs ago. I got searching the web, for something new. I am now addicted to dishcloths. They make wonderful gifts for any reason.
