The Sunshine Seed Stitch Dishcloth is a super simple pattern that results in a pretty washcloth you can use to brighten up a bathroom or kitchen. This knit dishcloth also makes a great hostess gift. The texture of the seed stitch really adds some wonderful visual interest to this free knitting pattern. The designer suggests using a cotton yarn for dishcloths and washcloths due to its ability to absorb water and the soft feeling on the skin. This dishcloth knitting pattern is great for knitters of all skill levels who are looking for a quick and easy project that produces a cute and useful end result.

Love the sunshine yellow. Dish cloths, wash cloths, spa cloths, whatever you call them, they seem to be my weakness. I love making these. They are so fast and so fun to make for just myself or for one of my friends. I also love to make up a little gift basket to put in my guest room and include these for a little special touch.

I don't buy dishcloths anymore. I make this and this pattern is perfect. It adds a bit of texture which is always welcome. The color yellow is uplifting as well. Why not add a little sunshine when you are doing housework? Perfect pattern. Thank you.

Wanting to learn a new stitch??? Here is the best way. I love the look of seed stitch and here is a cute little dishcloth. I haven't found anyone that doesn't love cotton knit dishcloths. Practice stitches you want to make and make dishcloths to put in your gift drawer. It's a win win for everyone )

Seed stitch is pretty, anyway, and it really shows up in this dishcloth. I like that color combination, too, but I can see it in a variety of color combinations. The best thing (for me) is that using it this way, you don't have to account for borders of any kind.

I think seed stitch is really fun and I love dishcloths because they are so quick. This one will be a nice mindless knit for in front of the TV. Right now, I'm working on a pattern that requires too much thought and it's frustrating. This will be my next project, and the texture will be nice for washing dishes.

Yay for seed stitch! It makes a nice textured appearance and a nubby surface perfect for washing and wiping. This pattern comes out a good size (9" x 9"). Although it looks good in yellow I'm sure it would look great in almost any color, and self patterning yarn would give it an interesting look.

Seed stitch is one of my favorites. It creates such a great texture that is both visually interesting and useful in a dish cloth! These make great gifts. I made several yellow ones to use in my kitchen. The stripe shown in this patIern creates additional interest, but I usually just use a single color. Yellow is a bright, cheery choice for the kitchen. Usually it only take a couple of evenings to complete one dishcloth.
