Lip Service Knit Dishcloth

If you're sick of classic, square-shaped knitted dishcloths, we've got your next project. This Lip Service Knit Dishcloth is fun, quirky, and anything but conventional. It's especially great as a gift. Try giving a set away for a friend's housewarming party, or for a bridal shower or bachelorette party. These dishcloths make great gag gifts, but they actually look really cute in the modern kitchen. Try making them in pink, red, and coral for a set of hilariously lipstick-colored dishcloths. Your daughter will probably want to take them with her when she moves out, so don't lose them!
