Hand­made dish­cloth

Landscape (UK) - - In The Kitchen -

A knit­ted dish­cloth is a sim­ple and use­ful craft pro­ject for the kitchen. Us­ing thick cot­ton cre­ates a sturdy cloth suit­able for the rigours of the wash­ing-up bowl. Work­ing in a thread of con­trast­ing colour cre­ates a pleas­ing pat­tern. To make: us­ing 4mm nee­dles and dou­ble knit cot­ton, cast on 41 stitches. Rows 1-4: Knit one, purl one (this will form moss stitch, rather than a rib). Row 5: (k1, p1) twice, (k2, p1) re­peat to the last four stitches, (k1, p1) twice. Row 6: (k1, p1) twice, (p2, k1) re­peat to last four stitches, (k1, p1) twice. Strands of em­broi­dery cot­ton can be knit­ted in to form a pat­tern, if de­sired. Re­peat rows 5 and 6 un­til the cloth is al­most square. Re­peat rows 1-4. A plain dish cloth can be made en­tirely in k1 p1 moss stitch.
