The Hive Knit Dishcloth Pattern

Week 16 is a touch late, but here nonetheless! It's The Hive knit dishcloth sponsored by Lion Brand Yarns. For previous weeks' patterns, make sure to click on the 52 Weeks of Dishcloths link in the header.

I was looking for a super scrubby knit stitch that would knock out the dirtiest dish. This one does a great job! Not only do I love the Kiwi color, I love how easy Lion Brand's Kitchen Cotton is to work with. It's soft on the hands, but can still get the job done in the kitchen, bathroom, or any area you need to get squeaky clean. The stitch reminded me of honeycomb, so The Hive it is!
