A few weeks back I shared the pattern for my Basket Weave Dishcloth (shown above on right). If you missed it, you can get the free knit dishcloth pattern here. So today I am sharing the pattern for the Textured Knit Dishcloth. This pretty combo is sure to brighten up your kitchen … they’re great for making as gifts too!

      Hi Christine 🙂 The orange one was made with Knit Picks organic cotton, which is unfortunately no longer available. The green once was made with Lion Brand Cotton.

        Thank you Kara, it’s so sad when yarns colors are no longer available.

    I’m New to knitting from patterns. Could you explain what it means to “slip first st purlwise”? I assume “st” means stitch. Thanks!

      Hi Lisa 🙂 You would but your needle into the stitch as if to purl but instead of purling you just slip the stitch onto the right needle. Hope that helps!
