Simple Knitted Dish Cloths

These little dish cloths are a perfect touch for the kitchen. They measure 4.5” x 4.5”, fitting just right in your hand for washing dishes with. Another plus, they air dry quickly…no more gross, mildewy cloths! 

A quick and easy knit up:

I used a 100% worsted weight cotton on size 3’s. These cloths are both knitted flat on dpn needles.

Cast on 32 stitches

For garter stitch cloth:
Knit flat, slipping the first stitch of every row. Knit until measures 4.5” from cast on edge.
Cast off all stitches. Weave in ends.

For seed stitch cloth:
Row 1:*K1P1, repeat from * to end of row. Turn your work. *If the stitch below is a knit stitch, you want to do the opposite, making a purl stitch, and so on.
Repeat Rows 1 until piece measures 4.5” from cast on edge
Cast off all stitches in stitch pattern. Weave in ends.
*Note: These cloths do stretch slightly, once they’re used.

Happy Knitting!...and scrubbing.
