And if you do know how to knit already, it’s a great way to use up the left overs from your stash. And who couldn’t use an extra dishcloth or two anyways. Includes links to a complete how-to video, showing how to do everything from casting on, casting off, knit, purl and working in the ends.

I only use hand knit dishcloths and have for years. I can’t express the superiority of these things! Regardless of the style, and I have designed a few, they last forever, have fabulous scrubbing power and double as a great heat protector when setting a hot pan on the counter or grabbing something out of the oven. They wash well and it’s nice to have something on hand that reminds you of how truly crafty you are.

And as promised, here is the video showing you every step of this pattern. If you ever wanted to learn how to knit this video will show you how.
