Just in case someone would like to make these, I cleaned up the pattern and explained what I did in more detail. These are so fast and easy to make. Everyone on your Christmas list can have a stack of new dishcloths!!
2 balls 100% cotton yarn your choice ( I used Lily Sugar'n Cream, 1 solid, 1 varigated)
(This will make 2 dishcloths by reversing the color of the cloth and trim for the second one)
Larger gauge knitting machine (100 needle bed)
size H crochet hook
Gauge (16 ½ sts = 4”)
Cast on 35 sts using the cast on of your choice. I used the backward loop. Knit one row. Set row counter. Place weights.
Knit 57 rows. Bind off. I used a knit cast off rather than a chain off for more flexibility since cotton doesn't stretch. If you have trouble with that just slip the sts off the machine onto a size 9 needle and bind off by hand. Do not cut yarn.
Place remaining loop onto a crochet hook.
(RS,working on side of dishcloth) Chain 1, sc in same space , sc in next row end.* Skip 1 row end, sc in next 2 row ends,* rep to corner.
2 sc in corner. Sc in each st across, 2 sc in corner.
Continue around, repeat the same as other side of dishcloth.
1 sc in same space as first sc. Slip st to join.
Next row (change color)
*Chain 3 , skip 1 sc, sc in next st. * Repeat around. Slip st to join.
