Whether you're just learning how to knit or you're a seasoned pro looking to whip up a few quick kitchen and bath accessories, a knit dishcloth pattern is a wonderful knitting tool for a number of reasons. First of all, a knit dishcloth pattern is both the perfect length and width to get the hang of a new stitch. Think of a knit dishcloth pattern as a stitch swatch, much like what more experienced knitters use to determine gauge before beginning a project.
Another reason to love knit dishcloth patterns is they make wonderful homemade gifts. In just an afternoon, you can create a beautiful and practical housewarming gift or going-away present for a friend or family member. Knitted dishcloths are both a practical and fun way to expand your knitting skills. Plus, since everyone could use a few extra dishcloths around the kitchen, you can work up as many as you please and freely give them away. Keep reading for some of our favorite knit dishcloth patterns.
