Thank you! This is one if my very favorite all time patterns. With all of us being in lock down, what a great time to start making gifts for family and friends.
I love the pattern but I always end up using a size 5 and do up to 65 stitches. Wondering if I’d have too much gapping if I too used a size 9.
love the colors joy!
these are my favorite things to knit.
we use them in the bath and for dishes.
I'm still knitting them also! I started when you wrote your first post on this topic! Your version of this basic dishcloth pattern is the best! I have tried more complicated patterns, but it is, after all, a dishcloth, why complicate things? They are meant to be well used :o) They do make wonderful gifts. Blessings, Marie
I am a new reader of your blog. I am barely learning to knit. The other day I knit my first three rows! 🙂
The idea of you knitting while actually driving cracked me up. Those cloths are amazing. Do you use some for bodies and some for dishes?
Okay, I'm motivated to pull out that scrap yarn I have and keep my fingers moving 🙂
I almost always have a dishcloth going (though I crochet mine). They're easy and you always need more of them!
Hi Miss Joy,
I love knitting dishcloths.
They are so much fun.
You should check out Ravelry.com.
It is free to join and I have some dishcloth patterns I designed on there for free.

I could email them to you instead if you want.
Joy, your dishcloths are so lovely! You're inspiring me to give one a try. I'm *very* new to knitting, but if they really are simple…I might just be brave enough to attempt one. 🙂
Have a beautiful day!
These dish clothes are sooooooo therapeutic! I am glad you reminded me of this pattern. I have been using up my stash of craft cotton and blessing my home with new dc's, what a blessing indeed.
Blessings and ((HUGS))
