Knit your own dishcloths with these knitted dishcloth patterns.
Who would have thought that there were so many different patterns for the humble knitted dishcloth? The ones below only touch on the variety that can be found on the internet.
Knitted dishcloths make a great project for the beginner knitter.
They are also a great way to try out new patterns and explore new techniques if you’re a more experienced knitter.
Or they could serve as an outlet for creating your own knitting designs and patterns. If you’re wanting to make some of your own dishcloths (they are excellent to use by the way), below are some patterns to get you inspired.
