This Crazy Eights Circular Dishcloth is a super unique dishcloth knitting pattern. Using short rows knitting to create individual wedges which are then seamed together, this free knitting pattern is packed with personality. The variegated yarn also adds style and color to these dishcloths, but they'd look lovely in solid colors as well. Just choose your favorite all-cotton worsted weight yarn, and you'll have a unique, durable, colorful dishcloth that will make doing the dishes just a little more fun. This is also a great practice pattern if you've never tried short rows knitting before.

I like to practice new techniques and stitches by making dishcloths. You get the practice and the result of something practical. This will be no exception. Thank you for the pattern. These are unique.

I made the Heirloom Washcloth from the same blogger and it came out very nice, so I pinned this one to make it too. I love working with cotton yarn and have lots of small balls, so dishcloths and washcloths are perfect for using those odds and ends up. My only tip would be to cast on loosely and bind off loosely so your ends will match up for stitching together.

I love making dishcloths because I get to practice my stitches. Short rows are really fun and interesting, and these look so good you can use them for gifts - or even really big coasters!

At first I thought this would be a pain to make, having to stitch all those pieces together, but that's not the way it works, thank heavens. Just one short seam (half the circle width) is all it takes. The cool thing is that you can change colors any time you want. I have lots of odds and ends of cotton yarn, so I know what I'm making! Anybody want on my gift list? )
