Waffle Knit Dishcloth Pattern – Easy and Fun to Knit Up Quickly
This Waffle Knit Dishcloth pattern is easy and fun to knit up quickly and beautifully! I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton (available in tons of solids and variegated from Yarnspirations). My daughter places repeat orders (the price is right!!) because she just loves them. They’re dishwasher-safe (top shelf) so they’re always germ-free. And, to top it off – they do a great job scrubbing dishes!
