Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth Free Knitting Pattern

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.


Pattern #1

  1. Cast on four stitches. 
  2. Knit 2, yarn over, knit to end of row. 
  3. Repeat this until 50 stitches on the needle. 
  4. To decrease, knit 1, knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to end of row. 
  5. Keep repeating until you reach 4 stitches, then bind off.
  6. Cut off the ends.

Pattern #2

  1. Cast on 4 stitches.
  2. Then k2, yo, k1.
  3. Do this every row until 42 stitches on needle 
  4. Then start decreasing as follows: k1, k2tog, yo. 
  5. Do this every row until back to 4 stitches, then cast off.
  6. Weave in the ends.

With these two super-easy patterns, even beginners can get this done relatively quickly. Once you're done, you can even re-tie the ends where you last cast off on the edge of the dishcloth. This is usually done in farmhouse dishcloths and makes hanging them for drying much easier. You can even make it your own, and if you crochet you can add a fun little border around the edges.
