Who would have thought that there were so many different patterns for the humble knitted dishcloth? The ones below only touch on the variety that can be found on the internet.

Knitted dishcloths make a great project for the beginner knitter, or a way of trying out and exploring new patterns for the more experienced knitter. Or they could serve as an outlet for creating your own knitting designs and patterns. If you’re wanting to make some of your own dishcloths (they are excellent to use by the way), below are some patterns to get you inspired.

As well as knitting patterns, there are also some crocheted dishcloths if you prefer, as well as some scrubby patterns and a Tawashi pattern.

I know, shock horror, I’m using acrylic, but the label said cotton and with a cranky bub, I didn’t bother reading the fine print. As a bonus, acrylic dries much quicker than cotton, so I’m quite pleased with the added acrylic. And if you’re wondering, I use this pattern, found in the dishcloth pattern round-up. [...]
