Designed by the talented Stana Sortor, this charming dishcloth is created using the double moss stitch pattern. It is worked in 3 parts and then joined together.

The pattern comes in a single size and measures approximately 8.5 inches wide and 9.5 inches high. In metric measurements, that is about 21.5 cm wide and roughly 24 cm in height.

To make the dishcloth, you will need the Shine Worsted yarn, It is a vibrant and durable worsted-weight yarn made of 60% Pima cotton and 40% Modal natural beech wood fiber.

The yarn is simply perfect for warm-weather garments and dishcloths like this piece we are making. Best of all, it’s machine washable!

Aside from the yarn, we will also need a size US6 straight or circular knitting needle. That’s a 4.25 mm  knitting needle if you are using the metric system.

Techniques Required

Moreover, you will need to utilize a few knitting decrease and increase techniques when making this project. You will be using the kfb increase and the p2tog, k2tog, and ssk decreases.

The kfb or bar increase is one of the simpler methods to increase the number of working stitches in your knitting needle. If you want to know how to do the kfb, we have a step-by-step tutorial for it here: Learn How to Make a KFB or Bar Increase.

The p2tog, k2tog, and ssk are all knitting decrease techniques. P2tog means purling two stitches together. You use it on the wrong side or purl side when knitting a stockinette stitch.

K2tog stands for knitting two stitches together. It is the reverse side equivalent of the p2tog. Ssk stands for slip one, slip one, knit two stitches together. It is a decrease frequently found in lace patterns.
