This Easy Knit Textured Dishcloth is pattern #26 in the 2017 Knitted Kitchen Blog Hop.
This textured dishcloth is another easy knit, perfect for spring and summer crafting, gift giving, and for learning a new stitch, or even a whole new skill if this is your first visit! Also, being 100% cotton, it’s another DIY you’ll feel great about.
Lion Brand has generously provided us with yarn for the 2017 Knitted Kitchen Blog Hop, so all of the patterns will be made with 24/7 Cotton or Kitchen Cotton. Both are medium (worsted, #4) weight 100% cotton yarns.

Dishcloths are great beginner projects because they work up quickly, and provide something useful as the finished product – which in turn can be extremely satisfying to use or to gift. They also make great projects for advanced knitters, because you can make them up en mass, and stockpile for gift giving. This pattern is done in a pretty simple broken rib type of pattern, giving it great texture for scrubbing. The 100% cotton makes it extra friendly as well.
