Dishcloths and washcloths are great things to knit throughout the year because they’re really useful, and it’s nice to have made something that you use every day. But they’re especially nice to knit in the summer because cotton yarn is sort of light weight and easy to knit with, the projects are small, and they’re washable should you happen to get sand (or dirt, or grass) on them.
I’ve been working on a few cloths lately — my daughter loves to use them at bathtime — and I also just saw this cute one on Facebook. The Hive Knit Dishcloth pattern uses Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton (which I love; I’ve been knitting with some bright orange stuff and its really nice) and a fun honeycomb pattern that’s scrubby and pretty all at once.
Seeing this post made me notice that the designer, Jill of Being Spiffy, is 16 weeks into a 52 Weeks of Dishcloths challenge. Check out her site for a bunch more cute knit and crocheted cloths!
