I love dishcloths made of yarn. They are not only functional, but pretty as well. There are so many intricate patterns out there…dishcloths you could never find in a store. I made this ribbed knitted dishcloth as a test. Yep. I wanted to see how this ribbed stitch looked because I really wanted to use it on a sweater or a spring top. I think it turned out really well.
The ribbed stitched I used is easy even for a beginner. If you know the basic knit and purl stitches, you can do this. The design looks complicated, but it’s not. The neat part is you can adjust the pattern to fit your needs, or to make your own design. Add as many of the ribbing rows and/or knit rows that you want to get your desired look.
This knitted ribbed dishcloth can be used as a table napkin as well. If you are looking for an easy one-day project, this knitted ribbed dishcloth pattern may be just what you need.
Use this pattern to make a thoughtful gift for any occasion…make a washcloth and hand towel, put it in a cute basket with some sweet smelling bar soap. EASY!
I hope you enjoy this easy and free knitted ribbed dishcloth pattern.
