Almost Lost Washcloth – Free Knitting Pattern Review
Since learning how to knit not too long ago, I’ve been pretty much obsessed with making dishcloths. They are (usually) easy and fairly quick to work up, making them a great knitting confidence booster. When I stumbled upon this pattern while looking through Ravelry I actually said “ooh” out loud. At first, looking at the picture it looked like the cloth is made in the round, working from the center out, but upon closer inspection (and after reading the pattern) I was relieved. No double poined needles are needed, whew! This pretty, flower shaped dishcloth is actually worked in rows, and it’s easier than it looks. If I can do it, you can do it!
The pattern calls for size 8 needles, but I opted for size 7. With the size 7 needles the finished dishcloth measures about 7-1/2″ (19cm) across. If you are feeling brave, you could try making this in size 0 or 1 needles and size 10 cotton thread, it would make a really pretty table decoration with a candle on top.
If you do not have a row counter, I cannot recommend this one enough. It is the only one I’ve found that has a hole to string through so you can hang it around your neck. One lost row in knitting is not as easily fixable as crochet…
