Grandmother's Favorite-The Original


Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth
Designer: Unknown
Rating: Easy Materials: Sugar and Cream yarn; Size 6 or 7 needles (US)
Instructions:
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1: Knit 4
Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row.
Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle.
Row 3: Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row.

You can now either bind off or do a round of single crochet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it..

I've tried a lot of other patterns, but this one is superior (or any garter stitch one). I like it best because you cah lay it over the sink divider and it will not sour. Enough air surrounds each stitch, that it dries before attracting mildewy stuff. I like the looks of several others, but this one is the most practical, IMO.

Try using allhemp6 yarn, it's antibacterial and never smells moldy or musty, that's all I use for dishcloth's anymore

Thank you for posting this. I am teaching a friend to knit and wanted to give her something to finish quickly (for gratification). But I could not find my old dish cloth pattern anywhere. I googled it got yours. I was so thankful to find it. BTW, she finished hers and was thrilled to have something she knitted that she could use.
