This darling, doily-style knit dishcloth pattern is a pretty kitchen accessory you'll love displaying for guests. The Country Charm Dishcloth features a pretty star stitch motif against a lovely lace pattern. We love this knit dishcloth pattern in the classic white as shown, but any solid color yarn would achieve the same result. The Country Charm Dishcloth makes a great housewarming or bridal shower gift.

I love this round pattern. I also like the blue and white dish cloth in the photo with it . Would love to have the name and pattern instructions for it also.

I'm always looking for interesting dish cloth patterns, and I love this one! It looks pretty in white, but I'm sure it would look great in whatever solid color you use. I'm not that good (yet) on double-pointed needles so this pattern would be a good challenge for me to take on!

Sorry, I meant to say using Circular Needles!

I'm a beginner knitter. I love this look. Any chance of being able to do knit it in the round? Will you supply the instructions. Many thanks.

I have read through the instructions but I think it will be more helpful if you take the pain to let us know the number of stitches to expect on each row .Thank you

All you have to do is add 8 stitches to the count each time you do an increase row. Just remember that a flat circle needs 8 increases every other row. I made this pattern and instead of using it for a washcloth, I used it to set a potted plant on. It looks really nice when it's finished.

I have never heard the term yarn forward. What is the difference between yarn over and yarn forward?
Apr 17, 2015
Hey there, ncbobbi! In this case, yfwd means simply to bring the yarn between the two needles, in front of the work, as if to purl. I hope that helps! Happy knitting!

On Row 18 I am running 1 stitch short. I am following the directions--Yarn forward, knit 1, yarn forward, knit 2 tog., knit six (8 times) Am I doing something wrong?
Sep 19, 2014
maybe, but its most likely a glitch with the yarn forward on either side of a k1 stitch, they can be a little tricky and blend right into the row-I would double check that stitch. hope this helps.

Hi, I would like to make this design with 12 inch diameter How many stiches would I need to cast on? Thank you for your help.
Jul 25, 2014
The gauge is 16-20 sts per 4". so to determine how many stitches to cast on you will have to determine your gauge and cast on accordingly. Every knitters gauge is different so there isn't anyone here that can tell you how many stitches to cast on. hope this helps.

I like the one in the back - where could I find this pattern??
Jul 25, 2014
These are bernat patterns-check the bernat site. I'm sure I've seen it there, its crochet I believe. Hope this helps.

What is yfwd mean in knitting.not seen this beforenice D.C almost looks crochet. Thanks
Jun 04, 2014
yfwd means yarn forward-its the same as yon-yarn over needle. bring the working yarn from the back to the front of the work, it will create a little eyelet when you do it.
