Happy April everyone! The weather is slowly starting to get warmer, so you know what that means – cotton knits! 😉 Let’s start off with a super simple + practical item to hand-knit for spring, with these pretty, textured knit dishcloths / washcloths, using this lovely chunky DMC Natura XL Just Cotton yarn from hobiumyarns.com
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 pair 7mm straight knitting needles
A pair of scissors
A small crochet hook for weaving in ends (I used a 6mm)
Cast on 20 stitches
Row 1: Knit 1 stitch, then Purl 1 stitch. Repeat this pattern (K1, P1) across the entire row.
Row 2: Purl 1 stitch, then Knit 1 stitch. Repeat this pattern (P1, K1) across the entire row.
Rows 3-33: Repeat rows 1-2, alternating.
Row 34: Bind off in pattern.
Use the crochet hook & scissors to weave in all ends + trim.
You’re all finished! Enjoy your new textured, 100% cotton knitted dishclothes / washclothes! 😉
