Let’s talk yarn–

 

For years, I always used this Sugar and Cream yarn. It comes in solid colors, variegated colors . . . LOTS of choices. It also comes in a large cone. You can make a lot of knit dishcloths with this size cone!

 

Recently, I’ve come across this cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby. I absolutely LOVE it! There is such a variety of colors and variegations; there are 71 choices on Hobby Lobby’s website!  Unbelievable! 🙂 Plus, I know that every other week, Hobby Lobby has all of their yarn 30% off, so I can grab whatever I need and it’s all on sale! Win-win! Knit Dishcloth | Knit Dishcloth Pattern | Knit Dishcloth Free Pattern | Knit Dishcloth Pattern Easy | Knit Dishcloth for Beginners | Knit Dishcloth Tutorial | Beginner Knit Dishcloth Pattern Free | Knit Dishcloth Pattern Free | Knit Dishcloths Free Patterns | Looking for an easy knit dishcloth pattern?

One thing you have to remember is that the yarn has to be 100% cotton. It’s a must!

 

So, whatever yarn you choose, just be sure it’s 100% cotton, a yarn weight of #4, and have about 2-2.5 ounces to work with.

 

Grab some size size 7 or 8 knitting needles and let’s get started!

  1. I’m back, having learned several cast-ons, as well as knit and purl via YouTube! My mom did teach me knit and purl almost 60 years ago, so they did come back, as well as how I always saw her hold her working yarn! Kinda funny how that was almost automatic, from seeing her adjust so many times–feels like I’m channeling her mannerisms!

    Ok, so what does yarn over mean? Is it like when I move my wkg yarn from front to back between knit and purl? Is that why it looks like I dropped a stitch sometimes?? Which I probably do, half the time! LOL! How would that work if only knitting?

    Thanks for responses!

  2. Are you serious? I am a total beginner, and I thought the Six Clever Sisters pattern would teach me how to get started. How do I cast on? How do I knit stitches? What does thread over mean? Guess I’ll be back when I’m not a beginner.

    • I’m a total beginner too – I have knitted a scarf. Look up on YouTube how to cast on. You’ll find awesome how to videos exactly what you need. I don’t get this pattern either but one day it will make sense so keep it bookmarked and come back. There are lots of things to find that you can do 🙂
      YouTube is the best I think!

  3. OMG! I thought these dish cloths were crocheted 100%. I can’t tell you the private tempter tantrums I’ve had trying to crochet them. Things get thrown, messes are made. My Mom (1400 miles away) says she knits them. GAME CHANGER! I can DO this.

  4. What is the name of the color of yarn in the first 5 pictures of working the pattern? I would love to get this color!

  5. I use Plymouth Fantasy Naturale. It’s mercerized cotton that never loses color and stays strong. I always use a size 7 needle. The garter stitch is great for counter cleanup.

  6. Do you have problems with the cotton shedding in the dryer? I have lint on the dishcloths which is frustrating. I have been using Dishie and Sugar and Cream yarns. Thank you for the pattern. It is slightly different from the pattern I’ve been using. I’m anxious to try yours as it seems simpler than mine.

  7. Thanks for the great pattern
