Popular Free Knitted Dishcloth/Washcloth Patterns
Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth: This is perhaps so named because it is a classic: it is knit diagonally with a simple eyelet border. They knit up so quickly that you can create a stack in no time!
Ballband Dishcloth: So named because it has appeared on the ball band of cotton yarns for years. Once knitted, it creates a cute laid-brick design.
Chinese Waves Dishcloth: For a dishcloth that has tremendous scrubbing power, this is the pattern you want to use. The “Chinese waves” design creates a thicker, nubblier pattern than plain garter stitch.
Leafy Washcloth: Ready to move beyond squares? Try knitting up this pretty leaf-shaped washcloth!
Spa Day Facecloth: Knit in a soft, DK-weight cotton yarn, this makes a luxurious face cloth; knit in a sturdier worsted-weight cotton, it makes a strong dishcloth.
Starfish Cloth: This washcloth has a fun starfish shape, and it’s far easier to knit than it looks. Your friends and family won’t be able to get enough of them!
So many enjoyable items can be created from the square patterns shown here, including scarves and blankets along with dishcloths and washcloths. And of course, the shaped cloths can make wonderful works of art. Enjoy knitting these dishcloth patterns!
