A Very Seedy Dishcloth

in Crafts,Knitting Patterns

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please check out OUR BOOK.

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.

Stacy–So cool! Thanks for letting me know!

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.

I love this dishcloth pattern and would like to write about making them for Christmas presents in my blog. May I post a link to your pattern in my blog?

14 Daisy November 30, 2012

Susan–Thank you and yes that would be perfectly fine.

Was wondering if anyone knows the stitch pattern so that I can make this dish cloth wider? Pattern calls for 29 cast on stitches, is it just needing to be an odd number of cast on?
