Monday Make Itz

Hand Knit Wash/Dish Cloths

Here is an easy quick knit project
to do while watching the Hallmark Holiday Movie Marathon.
These make great gifts,
and are very durable.

-One skein cotton yarn such as Sugar and Cream, or Peaches and Cream from Walmart.
Depending on the size of the skein, and how it is knit, it should make two cloths.
-size 10 knitting needles

 Cast on 4 stitches
Row 2--Knit 2 stitches, yarn over, knit to end of row
Repeat row 2 until there are 43 stitches
Next Row--Knit 1, knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to end of row
Continue until 4 stitches remain.
Knit 4 stitches, bind off.

-This is basically making two triangles-see pix. So may have to iron a bit to make it a square.
-Make sure strings are tightly tied at beginning and end so it won't come apart.
-Some yarns run, so soak a bit before using.
-use up ends of skeins for a colorful cloth

  1. My mom makes these using crochet instead of knitting. They make fun coasters too!
