FO Friday: Dishcloths

Okay so I went a little crazy knitting dishcloths a couple weeks ago and I think its time I show them off so here they are. I started knitting about 10 years ago and just last month was the first time I knit a dishcloth. I know people have mix feelings about them. Some people don't like knitting them for whatever reason while others like them because they can try out new patterns without doing a big project. That's the reason I decided to start making them and once I started I kind of couldn't stop. Most of these are made with really simple patterns but all except for two I had never done before. So I had fun making them and thinking of future projects I would like to make using the patterns. All of the patterns are from the book 400 Knitting Stitches by Potter Craft unless otherwise noted and I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. I bought the 14oz ball so so its enough to try out tons of new patterns!

  1. I love everyone of your dishcloths! They are beautiful, how creative.

  2. You did go a bit crazy, but I like all of them too. I've never seen that seersucker stitch before - I'm going to go look that one up and make one for myself!

    1. It's one of my favorites! I'm thinking of another project where I can use it again.

  3. That's a really cool idea! I need to get hold of a knitting book and try something similar myself :)

  4. Absolutely beautiful! I've not made any dishcloths but I love the idea of trying out some new stitch patterns with them :)

  5. I love them all!! I really enjoy using cotton dish cloths in my kitchen, and I like knitting them too!

  6. I love dishcloths and these all look great!

  7. oooh, they are beautiful. I really need to make some new ones. Maybe this would be a good way to try out some new patterns.

  8. I like the idea of using a dishcloth to try out stitch patterns... kind of like swatching, but has more of a purpose. :-)

    1. Exactly that's what convinced me to start making them. :)

  9. These are gorgeous! I just started knitting and I'm planning to try making some dishcloths. I love all the different patterns you've made!
