Dish Cloth Pattern

Guest Author - Marjorie Colletta

Simple Dishcloth Using a chart and written instructions

Dish Cloth



I have given both written instructions and a chart so that you can compare the two, to see how each works. (The picture above does not show the first five or the last five knitted rows.)

It is extremely important to note that a symbol means one thing on the odd side rows and something else on the even side rows. This is to better represent the way the pattern will look from the right side. In the case of the chart below, blank squares are knit on the odd or even side rows, and purl on the even or wrong side rows. The symbol means knit on the even or wrong side rows, and purl on the odd or right side rows.

A second important thing to remember is that charts are read from the right to the left on the odd side rows and from the left to the right on the even side rows when working flat.

This pattern can also be used as one of many squares of an afghan, and can be knit at any gauge with and type of yarn. Because it is a knit purl pattern it should not roll in on itself.

  • One skein of Sugar and Cream or any 100% worsted weight cotton yarn (you will
  • probably be able to make 2 dish clothes with each skein.

  • Needles to match, U.S. size 7 work best for me

  • Gauge 5 stitches per inch

  • Finished size 8 inches by 8 inches
