Designed by the creatives over at Yarnspirations, this knit kitchen accessory is worked either from a chart or from the written instructions.

It is available in a single size and once finished measures approximately 9 inches wide and about 8 inches long. That’s about 23 cm wide and roughly 20.5 cm long if you are using metric units.

To make the dishcloth, you will need Paton’s Lily Sugar ‘N Cream yarn. It is an exceptionally soft and squishy worsted weight yarn made of 100% cotton. The yarn is great for making kitchen and home projects.

You will also need a size US 7 knitting needle. That is a 4.5 mm needle if you are using the metric system.

When casting on, we recommend you use the long tail cast on to give the dishcloth a firm yet elastic edge. We have a step-by-step tutorial on this technique if you want to learn it. Find the tutorial here: Learn How to Do A Long Tail Cast On.

Once you complete the piece, you will need to weave in the yarn ends properly. If you’re not sure how to do this, we have a fully illustrated tutorial that you’ll surely find helpful. You can find this tutorial here: Learn How to Weave in Yarn Ends.
