How to Knit a Dishcloth: Pattern II (Beginner)


Hi Everyone!!

Welcome back! If you’re new here, thank you so much for taking the time to view and read my blog. I hope you find the blog or video below helpful, especially if you’re a beginner like me.

I want to start by saying I have truly been enjoying knitting dishcloths and using different patterns. It’s so much fun learning different knitting styles and techniques and just seeing what the beautiful creation will become. I love that it takes only a few hours and then I can actually use the project that I just completed. I also had no idea how much better these knitted dishcloths are than the dishcloths I’ve purchased in the store. So needless to say, I’ll be making many more dishcloths and will be using many different patterns.

The pattern I used for this particular dishcloth was very simple. You only have to start with four stitches on the needle and increase as you go. Then when you get to a certain point you do your decreases. It’s super easy and I love this pattern so much. My only concern is that the dishcloth is smaller so next time I would continue to increase the stitches to my liking before I decreased.

I used 100% cotton yarn again so that there wont be any issues with the dishcloth shrinking or changing shape. You can find it at your local yarn store, however, I got the brand Peaches and Cream from Walmart.

If you’re interested in learning how to knit this dishcloth please read the instructions below or you can click the link for the video tutorial.


Cast on 4 stitches

Knit 4 stitches

Knit 2 stitches, Yarn over, Knit to end (repeat until you have a total of 37 stitches on the needle then you will start your decrease)


Knit 1 stitch, Knit 2 stitches together, yarn over, knit 2 stitches together, knit to end (repeat until 4 final stitches on the needle)

Bind off the final 4 stitches and weave in the ends.

You are Done! EXCELLENT WORK!!
