Dish Cloth - Knitting Pattern

Well, my dishwasher died on Boxing Day, so I have been doing holiday dishes by hand for over a week. So it was time to knit dishcloths. This is a super simple, yet highly effective basic dishcloth that knits up quickly. I know it would make a great small handmade gift.






I already had some wonderful dk (8ply) cotton yarn my stash.

You will need:
40gm cotton dk yarn
4mm needles

Cast on 40 stitches.
1. Knit 2, purl 2, repeat to end
2. Purl 2, knit 2, repeat to end
3. Purl 2, knit 2, repeat to end
4. Knit 2, purl 2, repeat to end

Complete 51 rows using the pattern above. On the 52nd row, cast off, keeping the pattern of the row.

Crochet the tails into a loop (I hang this to dry off the tap in my kitchen).
