Welcome to the 4th of this series of wash or dishcloth patterns. These are great ways of practising new techniques, or knitting quick projects. I also like to include them with a handmade soap as a quick gift idea. Cleaning cloths also make terrific gag gifts.
For this you need:
- 4mm knitting needles
- DK cotton yarn
- Darning needle
- Optional – crochet hook
Cast on 40 stitches
This is a 4 row repeating pattern
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: Knit 1, purl one – repeat over the whole row
Row 4: Knit 1, purl one – repeat over the whole row
Repeat these 4 rows 12 times (48 rows)
You can now either darn in your tails, or take one of the tails, and chain 15 stitches with a crochet hook. Fold this over into a loop and stitch it to the corner to create a hanging loop.
