The pattern itself is very short, repetitive and easy to follow. Exactly what a newbie knitter needs to get his or her knit on! For more the seasoned knitter, this pattern doesn’t require a gauge as it’s a dishcloth and sizing isn’t important. Also, if you want to make a larger dishcloth, increase the number of initial stitches cast on and increase the number of repeated rows to make it square.
Things you need:
Size 3 US (3 or 3.25 mm) knitting needles
1 3/4 oz (50g) ball of [* 100% cotton *] worsted weight yarn
Size 8 US (5 mm) crochet hook – this is optional
Large sewing needle
Cast on 35 stitches
Row 1 – 5: Knit across
[Row 6:*] Lace knit stitch across.
To make this stitch, simply wrap the yarn twice around the knitting needle and work as any knit stitch.

Row 7 – 11: Knit across.* Repeat from * to * 8 more times. There will be 9 lace rows.
If you want to make a scarf simply repeat from * to * as many times as you like until you knit the length you want.
You can stop here if you choose to not crochet the edge. If you choose not to, the edge dishcloth will look like the edge on the rainbow coloured dishcloth shown above.
If you prefer a more finished edge for your dishcloth, single crochet evenly around the edge. Make 2 single crochets in each set of 5 rows, 1 single crochet in the lace knit row, 3 single crochets in each corner, and 1 single crochet in each knitted stitch along the cast on edge and the cast off edge.
That’s it! Like I said before, this is a very repetitive pattern that enables the newbie knitter to master a few basic stitches while still making something they can be proud of. A more experienced knitter can make these in a few hours or less and great to whip up if you want to give them as a gift, or even if you need a dishcloth for yourself.
