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
Keep going in this manner until you have desired length of cloth, or through 50 rows. Looks very pretty. Can also be knitted using some netting yarn intertwined with the cotton, to make a scrubby type cloth.
