My mother used to make blankets using this stitch, so I figured it would make a good dishcloth too! These cloths last a really long time too!
Size 8 knitting needles
2 oz skein of Sugar and Cream worsted weight cotton ~ or your fave brand
Cast on 30 stitches
Row 1: k5, p5, k5, p5, k5, p5
Rows 2-5: repeat row 1
Row 6: p5, k5, p5, k5, p5, k5
Rows 7-10: repeat row 6
Rows 11-15: repeat row 1
Rows 16-20: repeat row 6
going in this manner until you
have desired length of cloth, or through 50 rows. Cut a 4" length
of yarn to finish, Pull through loop of last stitch, and then weave in
ends using a yarn needle.
Looks very pretty AND washes those dishes!! Can also be knitted using some netting yarn intertwined with the cotton, to make a scrubby type cloth.
