This is not only a cute dish cloth but the basket weave pattern gives it texture, which is great for washing and cleaning. There are so many colors and types of worsted weight cotton yarn available that you could make a number of these and they could all be different.

The knitted basket weave pattern is a very simple pattern, but makes for a great looking item. It is made with very basic knit and purl stitches. The pattern is written out in detail, row by row, and is very easy for a beginner to follow. Keep adding rows and you can make a knitted dish towel.

This is very good to know! You've got some good tips there for us newbies! It'll be my first time to do this stitch pattern. I love the way it looks! It seems so perky and pleasant. I know I do lose count easily so using these tips will be a great help. Thanks!

Ooops! Now you'll know that I do lose track I was actually trying to post this below this person, underneath Kathleen's entry! LOL

My first attempt at basket weaving didn't go as well as I would have liked I would get mixed up with my knits and purls and end up with random stripes instead of an even weave. My next try I marked the divides with some circular stitch markers and used a counter. That helped this beginner a lot.

my second dish cloth - think I shall do several dish cloths as stocking stuffers not only do they use up those left over yarn bits, but they work really well - okay, I am late to the lesson
