waffle knit dishcloth pattern


Lots and lots of dishcloths have been flying out of the Firefly Farm shop ~thank you all for the support!

My favorite is a pattern I came up with using the raised box stitch, which gives the dishcloth a great waffle texture. For anyone interested in making it, I would like to share the pattern. Wouldn't several of these, along with some of Mrs Meyers dish soap, make a nice Christmas gift?

Waffle Knit Dishcloth
from Homespun Living

Materials: 1 ball Lion cotton yarn; additional yarn for colored stripe, if desired.
Size 6 needles (4.25 mm)

Directions:

Cast on 38 stitches.
Knit 3 rows for border.

Row 1: (right side): Knit.

Row 2: K 3, purl to last 3 stitches, k 3.

Row 3: K 3, (P 2, k 1) 10 times, p 2, k 3.

Row 4: K 3, (K 2, p 1) 10 times, k 5.

Repeat these 4 rows, 6 times. If a colored center stripe is desired, change yarn now and work rows 1 – 4, 2 times in desired color.
Change back to main color and work the 4 row pattern, 6 times.

Knit last 4 rows.
Bind off and weave in ends.

*Pattern writing is new to me; if you note any mistakes, please let me know ~ thanks!

  1. Deb,
    This is a beautiful pattern - I love the raised box stitch. How clever of you to be able to create your own knitting pattern! Thanks so much for sharing it. I have lots of wool left over from making afghans, so will definitely make a Waffle Knit Dishcloth .

  8. Thanks for your visit Deb and also for leaving me a message :) I have to admit, i thought you were gone for good, but i am glad you are not.

    I really love this pattern, wish i could understand the tutorial and how to make them. I guess i have enough with my sewing these days. Yes, i am trying to improve my technical skills. I have now enough books. I recently bought a great book from katrin cargill, it is filled with so many good instructions and illustrations, i think it is perfect for me! Yes, for me that can`t understand tutorials very well :) I guess it is because i am a Norwegian girl who tries to learn from English books :))I am using the dictionary a lot..
    I hope you have good days Deb, and happy weekend! Aina x

  20. Thank you for sharing the pattern. I have been knitting some dish cloths to send to my Grandmother for her birthday and this was the perfect final one. My husband even likes this one. It knit quick, had visual appeal with the boxes and as my husband says...has the all important stretch factor.

  21. Oh, my first EVER attempt to "follow" a pattern. You made it so much easier to understand than the ones I've been looking at to learn. I'm going to post it to show my progress at learning to knit. Thank you for sharing! (I didn't add the different color, as I've not learned how to do that yet :-} )

  27. Deb,
    If only I could knit....instead, I will just have to continue purchasing my dishcloths from your shop!

    BTW, my mom loves the dishcloths I ordered from you earlier. I "borrowed" two of them from her and just love them. I will never use a sponge again.

  28. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I've admired this cloth since I started reading your blog a few months ago. I'm fairly new to knitting and have really enjoyed making dishcloths. I look forward to knitting up many of these!

    A quick question? Where is the best place to get the Lion Brand cotton? I've only used Sugar'n Cream so far.

  38. Hi, I'm River. I wandered over here from down-to-earth. I love the dishcloths you've made and I've been thinking a couple of dozen of these or more, in plain colour (no stripe) would be great stitched together as a casual throw for the couch. Thanks for the idea.

  65. Hi, I don't know if its just me, but I think there may be a typo in your pattern- It says CO 38 sts, but Row 3 reads "Row 3: K 3, (P 2, k 1) 10 times, p 2, k 3." - So, 10 seed sts (20 sts) + 3 K sts + 2 P sts + 3 K sts = 28 sts total, right?
    Anyway, its a beautiful pattern and I think I'll start on it right now!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I've made many of these, and it's high time I thanked you for posting this pattern. My father-in-law recently asked for more of these (I gave him three as a gift last year). Why? He loves them so much he's afraid someone will steal them. That's how good your pattern is: It creates irrational fears of disappearing dishcloths! :)

    I have been wanting to knit these as gifts, but only have size 7 needles and don't want to purchase new size 6s right now.  I am using a  Sugar 'n Cream  cotton...do i need to modify your pattern at all if I use these bigger needles?

    ReplyDelete
  131. Debbie6:49 PM

    Aimee, I think the 7's will work well enough--the fabric will be a little looser and the cloth might be a little larger, but I find once they are washed and tossed in the drier, they snug up nicely.

  144. Someone sent me the link to your waffle-weave dishcloth. I can hardly wait to make some -- my supply of homemade ones was depleted last Christmas. I give them as gifts -- one size fits all and everyone uses them. I bundle several together and add a bar of fancy soap for a unique, original gift. One friend asked if I was hinting that she needed a bath!

  145. I am a fairly new knitter. I've crocheted for years, and love it, but a knitting friend of mine got me interested in trying to learn to knit again. The first project I tackled was a simple but large shawl, which I love, so I've been looking for smaller projects to fiddle with now. I love knit and crocheted dishcloths, and I came across this pattern on Ravelry. I decided to play with it a bit this evening - I always like to do a practice run before starting on the actual project - and I had to comment to tell you how much I love this pattern. It's easy to work with, has just enough variety from row to row to keep it interesting, and it's a beautiful pattern. I can't decide which side I like best - they're both lovely. :) Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. By the way, I love your blog, and have just finished spending an enjoyable hour reading through some posts, admiring your pictures, and thoroughly enjoying the creativity you share. Thanks again, and I know there are a few people on my list who will very much enjoy some new dishcloths this Christmas. :)

  151. Hi, I have just recently started knitting and after knitting lots of scarves, I have progressed to your dishcloth/ washcloth pattern. It was my first "pattern". I have posted about it on my blog and I have linked to your blog.
    Thanks for sharing.
