Checkered Lace Dishcloth

This dishcloth pattern has an alternating pattern of stockinette and square of eyelets. The eyelets add a pretty and feminine aspect to the dishcloth, the squares add a country, homey feel, and the stockinette keeps the lace pattern from being overwhelming in such a small project. There is a moss stitch border to keep the dishcloth balanced and square. The lace pattern provides texture for cleaning, while the cotton yarn keeps the washcloth gentle enough for your skin or your non-stick cookware

The moss stitch border is knit right along with the main pattern.
