11 Free Knitted Dishcloth Patterns of Animals

These knit animals patterns for dishcloths will liven up the kitchen for everyone!

11 Free Knitted Dishcloth Patterns of Animals

Whether you're a sucker for the animal kingdom or you have a little one at home that you're trying to get excited about learning to do chores, these free knitted dishcloth patterns of animals are the way to go. Why knit a simple square dishcloth when you could find knit dishcloth patterns of foxes or dogs? That's the question I keep asking myself with just about any practical knitting pattern. We, as makers, have the power within us to make something fun and unique, so why don't we take advantage of that?

If you're not the kind of person to have knit animals living in your kitchen rent-free all the time, consider knitting a couple for different holidays or seasons. Consider knitting up an owl dishcloth for the autumn season, or a kitty dishcloth to commemorate Fluffy's first day in her forever home. Fancy knit dishcloth patterns are always a fun and festive way to jazz up your home for a special occasion.

Scotty Dog Dishcloth

This dog knit dishcloth pattern is a little more unique. If you specifically have a Scotty, or just love the breed, this motif is exactly what you're looking for.

Sly Fox Scrubby

I have literally never met a person who doesn't love foxes. This Sly Fox Scrubby is a cute little nod to autumn, but I think it's an adorable addition to any kitchen year-round. You could even knit it up in all-white for an Arctic Fox, or gray and white for a Marble Fox. Fox lovers, unite with this scrubby!

I Don't Give a Hoot Knit Dishcloth

Look at those eyes. Those eyes have seen some stuff. This little guy is another great autumn dishcloth to add to your kitchen, but I personally love the idea of knitting an owl dishcloth for a cabin in the woods or a rustic-themed home. It seems almost a shame to get him dirty when he stares into your soul like that.

Festive Owl Dishcloth

Speaking of owls, this is your best bet if you're looking for a more traditional dishcloth that you can easily incorporate into your home decor. Sometimes, free knitted dishcloth patterns of animals need to be a little more subtle, while still keeping their whimsical charm and festivity. That's where simple square dishcloths with charted animals come in. Don't worry; we have a few more of these coming up!

School of Fish Scrubbies

You just can't make a single fish scrubby; you have to make a whole school. You can knit them up in a bunch of different colors, or even use different colorwork designs to make your favorite fish (Angelfish, Clownfish... you name it)! I love this for a beach-themed bathroom or a lakehouse.

Lacy Butterfly Dishcloth

What better way to gear up for spring than with a butterfly? The nice thing about free knitted dishcloth patterns of animals like this one is that the design is not going to be the center focus of the kitchen; you can have a clean and sophisticated kitchen space while still incorporating a little magic in the form of a subtle little knit-and-purl butterfly.

Batty Dishcloth

Halloween lovers, this one's for you! I have an aunt who always decks out her home with Halloween decor top-to-bottom, and I'm sure I saw something like this in her kitchen one year. If there's ever a time to let out your dark and spooky side, it's with this dishcloth pattern. After all, knitting for Halloween always seems like such a waste, so why not put your skills towards something useful, like a dishcloth?

Dragonfly Washcloth

Not everyone loves bugs, but you can't deny the magical appeal of dragonflies. Not only does this pattern scream "summertime," but it's simple and clean enough to fit in with any kitchen, especially if you choose a nice neutral color like this cream or a lovely taupe.
