Note from the Editor
When you look at this dishcloth knitting pattern, you probably see a cute and simple kitchen cloth that your grandma would’ve used, but when I look at this pattern, I see my childhood baby blanket. Most of us can relate to having a blankie as a kid that we couldn’t leave the house without. I remember mine looked exactly like this dishcloth, except somewhat larger and had a little bear stitched in the corner. I used to ball the blanket up underneath my head at night as if it were an extra pillow, which is funny because I hardly use my pillow as an adult.
Naturally, as I grew older, the blanket got rattier, and because I was a strange little kid, one day I decided that I needed to grow up and not have a baby blanket anymore. For clarification, I was probably 4 when I decided this. I remember standing over my trash can dramatically as I dropped my baby blanket inside. I continued to stare and cry at the loss of my blanket when my dad came in and asked me what was wrong. I told him that I was too old for my baby blanket, and he just laughed at me and pulled it out of the trash. I still have that baby blanket, and now, I’m working on this knitting pattern as a way to stay connected with my childhood blankie.
