  1. The World's Most Easy-Peasey Dishcloth
    Cast on 4
    Row 1: Knit 4
    Row 2: Knit 2, Yarn Over, Knit to the end
    Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle
    Row 3: Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, Knit 2 together, Knit to end
    Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches on the needle. Bind Off.
    You end up with a cute little square, knit on the bias with a neat little edging. Plus, you only have to bind off 4 stitches!
    This is the oldest pattern that I have ever knit (it was my Gran's Grandmother's pattern). I went on a dishcloth kick this summer, churning them out by the dozens, until my hubby started to get this look in his eye that said "If I see one more of these things coming off of your needles, I'm getting you professional help". I felt it best to move on to another obessesion! Dishcloths are very gratifying though. If you are results oriented (like me), they give you a finished project so quickly!
    P.S.- These make great facial scrubs if you stop after 24 instead of 44 stitches

  2. In answer to your question…No!
    I'm a bit like you when it comes to knitting, and have churned out the odd scarf…I've even got the Stitch N Bitch book…never got around to making anything remotely challenging though. This little dishcloth is quite delectable. Might just give it a go 🙂

  3. Ahh, teaching yourself to knit! I had so much fun doing that. And then I discovered that while seemingly every other knitter holds their yarn in their right hand, I hold mine in my left. And it seems a lot easier to me, and faster, especially with the dreaded first time purl! (I hope I dont get you wound into tangly knots with this suggestion!) Good luck!
    I always wondered if dish cloths are something different in America…while I would happily knit one, I could not bring myself to use it to wipe up spills in the kitchen!
