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.

Thank you for posting this pattern. I just knitted this dish cloth – it was really fun, and I think it’s going to be a nice “scrubby” one. Thank you!

This dishcloth pattern looks great, and I’ll have it on the needles to-day. Thank you.

I’m gearing up for Christmas and always looking for some quick but pretty ideas for stocking stuffers. Thanks for the pattern…I’m grabbing my needles!

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.

Rita–Thank you! You’re very kind to let us know. I’m with you on dishcloths. You can’t have too many around, they’re useful little things!

Thank you for posting this pattern — I love to just mindlessly follow the steps and be rewarded by a fun pattern just appearing! Made a dish cloth for a friend’s bridal shower.
