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:

Materials:

1 ball DMC Natura XL Just Cotton yarn

1 pair 7mm straight knitting needles

A pair of scissors

A small crochet hook for weaving in ends (I used a 6mm)

 

Directions:

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! 😉
