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!

    Hi Janice,
    I wish I would have seen that you started your beginner class this morning! I was wondering if I could meet you during the week at another time- mornings are best- and pick up the next class on Sunday?
    Thanks !
