Knitted Dishcloths

I just LOVE these dishcloths and enjoy making them for others.   They are very simple so make a perfect project for a beginning knitter!

Difficulty Level:  Easy
Materials:  Sugar and Cream Yarn; Size 6 or 7 needles (US)


Cast on 4 stitches

Row 1:  Knit 4

Row 2:  Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row.

Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle.

Row 3:  Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row.

Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches left on the needle.

You can either bind off or do a round of single crochet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it.
