Another breeze of a knit.  Easy and fast.  This was done while the children were couch-jumping and trying their best to make off with my pattern book.

This is a reversible seeded rib.

I love the scrunchiness of the ribbing and how easy it is to memorize the pattern so I can knit this anywhere.

Love this pattern! Thanks for a free and easy to knit discloth. Crocheting is easier for me to do, but I can knit also. These little dishcloths make wonderful presents and are quick to work up.

Why oh why do I have to waste 8 pages of paper to print a pattern that would easly fit on 1 page? Please don’t do that.

Bev–Do what we always do. Select and copy only the text you want reproduced and paste it to a word processing document. I can get several patterns on one page this way.

I make the same thing only I crochet them so if you don’t know how to knit you can crochet if you know how to do that. I have also made hand towels for the kitchen by making the pattern wider and longer.

RE Seedy Disshcloth – would appreicate if you’d clarify on last instructions:KNIT All three more rows- Does that mean to knit 3 more rows or knit rows 1 -3, 4 & 5?

12 Tomato Lady April 2, 2012

Bali–Just knit three more knit rows to wrap it up.
