Can you believe we're on Week 6 of 52 Weeks of Dishcloths? I'm so happy so many of you are joining me on this fun knit and crochet adventure. If you'd like to play catch-up or missed any of the previous weeks, click HERE or on the 52 WEEKS OF DISHCLOTHS tab at the top of the page.
Today's dishcloth pattern is another family favorite…
I'm sure you've seen this pattern before. It's a simple, classic knit dishcloth that is worked from corner to corner. It works quickly for a knit, unless you have a baby that needs your attention every time you pick up your needles, like some people. ;) This is the dishcloth I remember my grandmothers and mother using. It's been passed down to me and now I'm passing it along to you!
I used this gorgeous Cotton Hemp yarn from Martha Stewart Craft's collection for Lion Brand. The color is peacock and it's a slightly bluer version of a peacock feather. As with all Martha Stewart's products, the colors are rich and beautiful.
