Personally, I'm thankful for knitting... and I know I'm not the only one. I love to deck the kitchen out in free Thanksgiving knitted dishcloth patterns every year, so why not share the best of the best?

These free Thanksgiving dishcloth patterns are also great hostess gifts if you're not the one taking care of Thanksgiving this year. After all, the hostess is doing the mostest (work), so why not reward her for all the time and energy?

3. Pumpking Dishcloth

Thanksgiving knitting just has to include pumpkins. I don't make the rules. Feel free to use this as a hotpad underneath the pumpkin pie you are legally obligated to serve at the end of the meal. Again, I don't make the rules.

4. I Don't Give a Hoot Dishcloth

Maybe this owl has seen some unspeakable stuff, but owls are autumnal and he belongs on this list. There's also the fact that his color scheme is just perfect for any kitchen decked out for Thanksgiving. Just don't stare too long into his eyes, or they might stare back.

6. Leafy Washcloth

Thanksgiving dishrags don't all have to be cute characters and food. They can just represent the changing of the seasons, as well! At this point, we're deep into autumn and celebrating the season, so we may as well enjoy the changing leaves while they last... even if it's just on our kitchen countertops.

7. Turkey Leg Dishcloth

It doesn't get more classic than this. For a quick and easy free Thanksgiving dishcloth pattern, nothing beats the Turkey Leg Dishcloth. As a bonus, you can even reuse it at your post-Renaissance-Faire-party... if that's a thing that people even do.

8. Knit Maple Leaves

I hear you shouting from all the way over here, "More leaves!" Don't worry; I have your back. These little guys are great miniature scrubbies for hard-to-scrape dried food, but they also make adorable little coasters if you feel like knitting one up for everyone from Grandma Karen to your first cousins once removed.

9. Sly Fox Scrubby

I have a soft spot for this little guy. Made using scrubby yarn, he's not only adorably classic in his autumnal vibes, but he actually cleans dishes pretty well. I have two of these: one red and one black, and I almost exclusively use them around Thanksgiving time.

10. Pumpkin Dishcloth

If you're thinking this far ahead to Thanksgiving, you probably also have Halloween in mind. Luckily, this bad boy is a two-for-one. Another easy knit-and-purl dishcloth, just about any skill level can manage it.
