Classic Chevron Knit Dishcloth
Brighten up your kitchen with a Classic Chevron Knit Dishcloth, knit with a happy tangerine-colored yarn and in an exciting arrow pattern. There is no better way to teach yourself a stitch than with a dishcloth, so it's also a learning experience. Though we love the bold and vibrant orange color of this dishcloth pattern, it's basic enough that you can tailor the pattern to suit your needs, and knit it in any color of the rainbow. Make it match your kitchen, or make it a contrasting color for a striking detail in your home.
