Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth Knitting Pattern is a simple beginner knitting pattern. You’ll want to make a whole drawer full of these knitted dishcloths!
Years ago, when I first started knitting, I looked for a beginning knitter pattern to help me learn how to knit.
I visited a quaint little yarn shop in a nearby town, and came home with a bag full of wool yarn, an easy knitting pattern for a basic scarf, and some metal knitting needles.
I worked on that scarf through the long winter months, and was so thrilled when my very first knitting project was complete!
The next knitting project I attempted was these dishcloths. And the result was so satisfying!
I had received a couple of these classic dishcloths for Christmas from my husband’s grandmother. I found them to be so great for washing dishes, and I wanted more of them!
After a few years of getting handmade knitted dishcloths from other people, I decided it was time to learn how to knit them myself.
The Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth knitting pattern is so easy and fun to make. Once I finish one I cast on another one!
I like the fact that I can do these pretty mindlessly, and for a beginning knitter they are easy to learn and practice knitting with.

Learn to Knit Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth
This pattern is commonly known as “Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth,” and it’s a simple, classic pattern.
No one is certain who created this pattern originally, as it’s been around for many years, handed down through the generations.
You can give your dishcloths a completely different look just by changing the yarn you use. Use a multi-colored yarn for a fun and cheerful look, or choose a solid color cotton yarn if you’re craving something a bit more classic.
Even though I love all the brightly-colored dishcloths I’ve made, my favorites are the more muted and classic-looking solid colors.
You can also make this same pattern in a coaster size! See this post: Easy Knitted Coasters Pattern
