Not only can you always use another dish cloth, spring and summer are the perfect seasons for sprucing up and refreshing your home, and one really great way to do that is with some fresh knits for the kitchen, especially when they’re done in 100% cotton. Another DIY you’ll feel great about.

Dish cloths are great beginner projects because they work up quick, and provide something useful as the finished product – which in turn can be extremely satisfying to use or to gift. They are also great projects for advanced knitters, as you can work them up en mass, and stockpile for gift giving. This pattern is done in the currently popular waffle stitch.
