This is a free knitting pattern for a striped knitted dish cloth. This free knitting pattern uses craft cotton and the traditional garter stitch with simple colour changes to produce a unique striped knitted dish cloth which is both hard wearing and washable. Knitted cotton dish cloths have been used in the home for many decades. This free knitting pattern produces a striped dish cloth which is approximately 20cm x 20cm but can be amended to make a bigger sized dish cloth by simply casting on more stitches and then knitting additional rows until it becomes square.
1 x 100g ball of craft cotton is sufficient to produce 3 dishcloths of 20cm x 20cm in size.
1 x 100g Ball of wool is sufficient to make approximately three dishcloths (20cm x 20cm).
1 x 5mm Knitting Needles
1 x 50g Craft Cotton (Ecru)
