Speed Bump Dishcloth – Free Knitting Pattern

Speed Bump Dishcloth - Free Knitting Pattern

Do we have any cross-crafters out there? People who both crochet and knit? Multi-craftual, as Marie from Underground Crafter would say. Crochet will always be my “first love” in the fiber arts, but after dabbling with knitting for a bit now, I’m starting to enjoy it more and more. It was NOT love at first stitch. Gosh, it just felt so awkward. Then I tried knitting left handed and it felt much more natural (I do everything else right handed, including crochet). So, essentially I learned to knit but made it harder for myself to read knitting patterns. I love knitting dishcloths with images on them made of just knit and purls. They’re great practice. However, if you knit the pattern exactly as written, left handed, you’ll end up with a mirror image of the pattern. Figured that one out quick! You’ve got to read the pattern from back to front to make it work. I’ve tried again everal times, but still can’t knit right handed. All well. Here’s a knitting pattern that can be knit by a lefty or righty and you’ll still achieve the same results.

This knitting pattern will work up a nicely textured dishcloth, and it’s really easy! The whole thing is just rows of knits or purls, with a slip stitch knit wise (sl st KW) at the start of each row.

Stitch markers are encouraged to separate the first and last 5 stitches to help you see the “border”. Not necessary, but helpful.
