Knitting - Waffle weave dishcloths

I have been knitting these for years...
 and once you wash your dishes with them, you will never go back ;-)
 I just knitted a whole batch to stock up...
They also make lovely gift. 
You will need the following -

1 ball Vinnis Colours yarn - cotton or bamboo
or a combo of both.
Additional yarn for coloured stripe if desired.
Size 6 needles (4.25mm)

  Cast on 38 stitches
Knit 3 rows for the border
Row1: (right side) : Knit
Row 2: K3, purl to last 3 stitches, K3
Row 3: K3, (P2, K1) 10 times, P2, K3
Row 4: K3, (K2, P1) 10 times, K5

Repeat these 4 rows, 6 times. 
If a coloured center stripe is desired change yarn now and work rows 1 - 4, 2 times in new colour.
Change back to main colour and work the 4 row patterm, 6 times.
Knit last 4 rows.
Cast off and work in ends.

(This pattern is from Homespun living - a lovely site - take a look!)


  1. I so love these but my knitting skills hark back way back to needlework classes in primary school. Maybe this winter with all that indoor time to do something with ... thanks for the pattern!

  2. Once you start knitting these, you will always want them at yr sink...yes my knitting skills were also rusty when I started these years back - but even knitting cute little sister a jersey give it a doubt you will get back into it very easy - it is so therapeutic ;-) love to you all XXxx
