It's that time of year! The holidays are upon us, and knitters might be hard-pressed to craft that perfect gift for their loved ones. It's too late to start sweaters, you can maybe get one scarf done, and blankets also take a long time to craft. What's something you can craft multiple items in a day and give out as a gift? A dishcloth, of course!
This pattern doubles as a washcloth, so you can use it any way you please. You can also make a bunch for yourself! With this textured pattern, you're sure to wash away all the dirt and grime to your heart's content.
For this pattern, I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn in neptune ombre. I used two US size 7 straight needles. You can use either one of these two patterns, depending on the size you want.
- Cast on four stitches.
- Knit 2, yarn over, knit to end of row.
- Repeat this until 50 stitches on the needle.
- To decrease, knit 1, knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to end of row.
- Keep repeating until you reach 4 stitches, then bind off.
- Cut off the ends.
- Cast on 4 stitches.
- Then k2, yo, k1.
- Do this every row until 42 stitches on needle
- Then start decreasing as follows: k1, k2tog, yo.
- Do this every row until back to 4 stitches, then cast off.
- Weave in the ends.
