LP201. Grandma's Dish Cloth

Grandmother's dishcloth! Who doesn't have happy memories of that? They are the best dish rags you have ever used, you can even scrub glass with them!

  • 4-ply, 100% cotton yarn
  • Knifty Knitter blue round loom
  • Knitting tool/pick
  • Crochet hook
  • Scrissors


Cast on 24 stitches using the chain method. Do not join in the round.

Row 1, 3, 5 (odd rows): Purl across
Row 2, 4, 6 (even rows): Knit across

Rows 7-42
Every odd row: Purl 3, Knit 18, Purl 3
Every even row: Knit across

Row 43, 45, 47: Purl across
Row 44, 46: Knit across

You can now either chain bind off using the crochet method, or the e-wrap method.

Tip: you can do a round of single crochet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it.

  2. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I have read instructions and watched other videos but you have finally made the purl stitch make since to me! Please, teach me more!!

  3. I really like this tutorial. Can you please add some more dishcloth tutorials using the loom. Thanks!

  4. Sophia, Thank you so much you are a wonderful teacher. Also you share your name with my darling mama... which makes it even more sweeter. :-)

  5. I like the look of your dishcloth,but mine seems to be more oblong and some stitches are loser.Can you please give me some tips on how to keep my stitches looking the same.I'm new to the loom knitting thank you.

  6. at about 3:00 when you pick up the tail, are you starting at the opposite side from where you purled? How are you going to the other side and not mixing up the yarn or crossing it over. You went from purl to pick p the tail and then I lost it. Are you skipping an obvious step or am I just not bright enough?

  7. sorry ignore the other post I am overtired

  8. I love this pattern so easy to follow and fun to make. The tutorial was very helpful it's like having my own private knitting teacher.
    Thanks for sharing this and taking the time to make the tutorial.

  9. I really, REALLY like this dish cloth pattern! I have only been loon knitting for about a month, and have only made hats and scarves so far. I bought some cotton yarn on sale yesterday, and the skeins were considerably smaller than the acrylic I was using to make the hat/scarf sets. I decided to troll around the net to find dish cloths, and came across this pattern. I like the easy stitches, and am very excited to see how mine look with the variegated yarn selections I made. Thank you for sharing this pattern.
