  # 2  For the longest time I searched for the pattern of a dishcloth I had seen at every crafter's store or bazaar I went to.
I thought I would share it with everyone.
It is so simple you could literally do it with your eyes closed, and finished in about an hour!

It goes like this:

With size 5 or 6 mm needles cast on 4 stitches of your favorite color cotton yarn.

Knit 2, yo, knit to end of Row.
Continue until you have about 46 to 50 stitches on your needle. You will have a neat triangle.
Then: When you're done the first part and you have this triangle, you should K2, YO,
then K2 TOG twice, knit until end of Row until you have 4 stitches left and then cast off.

This will create a continuous edge all around.

You're done. You can pull the dishcloth to be a proper square.

Enjoy this simple and quick pattern!

# 3  Hi,   I am a beginner knitter but with this said, I also  "try"  what happens if I  do this" :) 

I have created the following pattern using cotton yarn for a dish cloth:

Use no. 7 knitting needles.   Cast on 57 stitches on a needle

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: * K 1 st, slip next st onto needle * repeat across Row ending with  K 1 st

Row 3: * K 1 st, next st K in back of st  * repeat across row these two rows are the pattern.

Do the pattern until you like the length.
The last row should be your knit row & slip row = this row you Knit;  and then the next row bind off.

This pattern leaves no holes in the dish cloth where forks can snag the cloth;
and it is a pretty pattern and yet simple for a beginner.

Adjustments with size of needles and cast on stitches can make the cloth bigger or smaller. Just make sure that the last stitch or row 2 ends with a Knit stitch.

Have fun!  Thanks for making this site available.    Megan
