Another unique design by the very talented Knitpicks, This dishcloth is worked flat, from the bottom up. The spool is worked in seed stitch and the thread is worked in garter stitch.

Moreover, this pattern is available in one size only. Once finished, it measures about 8×7 inches.

To make this pattern you will need the Dishie Yarn. It is a beautiful and remarkably soft worsted-weight yarn made from 100% Cotton fibers. It’s the perfect yarn for Garments, Accessories, and home projects.

Furthermore, you will need a US size 6 Circular knitting needle. That’s about 4 mm if you prefer to use the metric system.


You can use the simpler long-tail cast-on method instead of the provisional cast-on. The long-tail cast-on is probably the most popular of all the cast-on methods. It is suitable for many types of knitting projects.

We have an illustrated tutorial for the long-tail cast-on if you want to learn it. You can find this tutorial here: Learn How to Do A Long-Tail Cast on.

Finally, as you come to finish the pattern, you will have to weave in the yarn ends. This method will give your shrug a nice and neat finish.
