Reposted: Checkerboard Dishcloth Pattern

I’m reposting this from my old blog over here, because it’s just more convenient for me, and because I’ve been planning on moving it over here to begin with. Yay, knittery!

This cloth was was designed using alternating squares of stockinette stitch and seed stitch, to make a nice checkerboard pattern. I use my dishcloths in the kitchen, in the bathroom, and everywhere else in my home. Old cloths get used to clean the bathroom fixtures or for the rare times when I get down on my hands and knees and scrub down my kitchen floor.

I used 100% cotton yarn in worsted weight. Sugar ‘n’ Cream is my brand of choice, but any other comparable yarn will work as well.

A 120 yd. ball of Sugar ‘n’ Cream has knit up 3 full sized dishcloths, with enough left over to make one small one.

Pattern:

Cast on 31 stitches, & knit 3 rows.

Knit Repeat A 4 times.
Knit Repeat B 4 times.
Knit Repeat A 4 times.
Knit Repeat B 4 times.

Knit 3 rows, bind off.

*You can omit the last repeat if you want a smaller dishcloth, or you can keep adding on repeats as you see fit


Repeat A:
Row 1 – k3, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k5, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k5, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k3
Row 2 – k3, p1, k1, p1, k1, p7, k1, p1, k1, p7, k1, p1, k1, p1, k3

Repeat B:
Row 1 – k8, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k5, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k8
Row 2 – k3, p6, k1, p1, k1, p7, k1, p1, k1, p6, k3


This pattern is to be knit for personal use only, not to be knit for resale, blah blah blah, its my copyright, y’all know the drill. Be good and awesome!
