Diamond Lace Dishcloth


This dishcloth pattern has a diamond lace design that adds a pretty and delicate touch to the dishcloth. The open and textured design adds a little scrubby power to the cloth. The all cotton yarn continues to keep the cloth gentle enough not to scratch surfaces - whether it is your countertop, or you choose to use this cloth as a washcloth for you face and body. For extra scrubby power, look for a hemp or hemp/cotton blend worsted weight yarn to complete this project. The diamonds are formed by doing a few rows of increase and then a few rows of decreases. The diamonds are staggered, with yarn overs in between them in order to keep a pattern going throughout the cloth. You will notice that the first pattern row of the diamond begins by alternating diamond that are just beginning and diamonds at their widest point.

Worsted weight cotton yarn is available at most large craft retailers and also at many smaller local yarn stores. Several colors and prints are available to help you coordinate to décor or personal taste.
