bright stripes dishclothSummer is the time for knitting with cotton, if you ask me, and Lion Brand has a limited time sale on its Kitchen Cotton yarn happening right now.

At 15 percent off a ball of this beauty costs just over $3, and it’s the perfect yarn for washcloths, bags and other accessories.

It’s a medium weight, 4-ply yarn that’s made in the United States and comes in a bright, retro-inspired palette of 14 solid colors. There are 99 yards per skein, which is enough for a washcloth or allows you to mix and match these fun colors on placemats and other home accessories.

Try your hand at the Bright Stripes Dishcloths, for example, which are super simple, mostly stockinette stitch with a garter stitch edging. They use eight bright colors as written, but you could use as many or as few as you like. It’s a great stash buster project if you have a variety of cotton yarns lying around, or stock up with this sale and you can knit a bunch of cloths with a variety of stripe patterns.

Have you ever used Kitchen Cotton? I actually have a ball of it sitting in my office that I haven’t played with yet, so I’d love it if you’d spill your thoughts!
