Knitted Dish cloths

Knitted dishcloths in my opinion are much nicer than any I have ever bought.

If you are just learning to knit , knitting a dish cloth is the perfect place to start.

If you already have the basic knitting skills then you will find that knitting a dish cloth is really easy. Whether you are making one for yourself or as a gift. If you enjoy knitting , you will find that they can be knit very quickly . I find it to be a very satisfying and rewarding project. They can be knit up as a dishcloth or a washcloth.


Gifting And Other Purposes

They make a really darling baby shower gift or a wonderful housewarming gift as well. Depending on the pattern and yarn that is used used. A great project for the beginning knitter, however, even the most experienced knitter will enjoy making them.

It is the perfect project to have on hand. I always have a dish cloth on a pair of knitting needles . This way I can pick up where I left off and knit away at any given time.

I have found that knit and crochet dishcloths are great for cleaning surfaces as well, counters, stove tops, etc... They give that scrubability without scratching the surface..

I think now as I am retiring an old and well used dish cloth I will recycle it and use them on the floors as a mop.

Good To Go

If you enjoy crochet as well than you may enjoy Crocheting Dishcloths.

I always keep on hand a ball of 100% Cotton yarn and a size 7 Knitting Needles..

The perfect for me combination for knitting a dish cloth or hand towel.

They are also the perfect item to take with while waiting for Doctors appointments, game practices, the Department of Motor Vehicles , the auto shop etc.,

Learn Basic Knitting

If you are interested in learning how to knit, you will find it is not as hard as you think...Once you get used to holding the needles , you will pick it up really fast.

Watch the video and read the articles , the links have been provided below..

The very first thing you will learn is how to cast on. Once you have done so , you will learn the 2 basic stitches, which are the knit stitch and the purl stitch. Every knitted item that you create will use just these 2 basic stitches..

There are many variations, to add texture and design., But once you learn these 2 basic stitches., you will easily be able to learn others.

      My Aunt Lucy use to make these. We lost her to Cancer about 12 years ago and many of us still have these treasures to remember her by. Homemade dishcloths will out last any store bought one. Voted up.
