To me, a cotton dishcloth is a perfectly perfect project.
Easy. Beautiful. Incredibly useful. Satisfying.
What more could you want?
It's the perfect palette cleanser in between more attention-demanding projects such as sweaters, lacework, socks, etc.
And there's nothing better to knit at Knit Night as well. It's a great chatting and stitching-without-messing-up design.
I used Wool and the Gang's Shiny Happy Cotton for this cloth. Just the Ivory White. Nothing too crazy.
For the more adventurous, check out all of these great colors.
The pattern is a freebie from Ravelry, of course.
IT IS ALL KNIT AND PURL STITCHES ONLY!
Couldn't be simpler.
