Today's a fun one!
Sitting around the dinner table on Mother's Day the conversation turned to craft - as it does - and I was saying how I wanted to make some knitted dishcloths but I didn't have the yarn I wanted.
We then played around with the idea of making them with what else but actual dishcloths!
I loved the idea and got straight to work.
An easy, cute project that takes no time to complete.
You only need basic knitting skills - cast on/off and plain stitch.
They are super soft when wet and become a gentle scourer. My finished cloth was about 10cm x 11cm
You will need : about 3 average sized dishcloths (different colours if you have them but one is fine too!) plus a pair of size US 11/8mm knitting needles. I used a pair of Tasmanian Oak Art Viva Knitting Needles.
- Cut a stack of 1 inch strips
- Tie a few of them together with a simple knot and pull firmly.
- Cut the knot ends quite close to the knot as it won't untie.
- Cast on 10 stitches and knit 6 rows - all garter stitch (plain)
- Change colours if you are using more then one
- Knit four more rows, change colour again.
- Repeat this 2 more times
- Change for the last time and knit 5 rows and on the last row cast off
- Poke in or trim any sticky out bits.
