Aunt May Dishcloth

By: Deb of homespun living

Aunt May Dishcloth is a cute free knitted dishcloth pattern. The best part? It's also incredibly simple to knit! Create this lovely cloth using the garter stitch, some ribbing, and if you choose, a decorative crochet border.

This is really cute. I'm tired of boring garter stitch dishcloths, so this is a nice change!

I really like the ribbed texture of this dishcloth - makes it perfect for washing. Handmade dishcloths are so much better than the thin store-bought ones that I only use handmade ones now, and make them to give as gifts. I'm sure this one would look fabulous in whatever solid color you made it in.

Another pretty dishcloth! I will skip the crochet border and I am sure it will still look nice. I use stitch markers to keep track of where I need to repeat and a row counter to keep track of where I am in the pattern. They really help. After I have done it a few times, I can tell where I am just by looking at the rows I have already knitted. Thanks for the pattern.

I love this pattern. And if you are afraid that you will lose count, get a row counter. They only cost a couple bucks. Sometimes when I am crocheting and get to watching the TV I lose track of what row I am on. It really helps. And as far as this pattern, I am not making it nto a dish cloth. It will be a table place mat. Thank you for sharing.

love this dishcloth thank you

@longmk 8050973 - Thanks for the heads up! Our readers will certainly appreciate it. -The editors of AllFreeKnitting

This is a very nice, simple dishcloth pattern--but it is not all garter stitch. If you are beginning knitter, this might be important to know!

Nor is it "incredibly simple"! I've been knitting for about 5 years, but I think I'll pass on this. As much as I get interrupted, a 12-row repeat would surely get lost in the process.
