Knit Stitch Dishcloth at Crochet Spot

The knit stitch is a remarkable stitch to use when you want something unique but still basic, because it is worked just like a single crochet, only shallower. Check out the tutorial for this stitch here!

Using this stitch for a dishcloth is a perfect way to add character to an everyday piece. Crochet this dishcloth in only a few hours or less and add it to your linen supplies for a rustic, handmade touch! And don’t be surprised when your friends want a few as well.

Tip: always use yarn made from natural fibers, specifically cotton and linen, for kitchen linens so that they won’t pill with constant use!
