Your favorite dishcloth pattern?
So I'm making dish clothes... lots of them. I've done a few Grandmothers favorite, and Double Bump... I'm looking for your faves, to give them a shot! I've been through tons of patterns, but wanted input from you all

Right now I'm making a mitered square cloth. You might like to try one. It's really easy.

ArtLady posted photos of mitered square things she's done, which I think included an afghan. They have lots of possibilities for making really interesting pieces. When I was told they're easy I thought, yeah, right, but they really are. Have fun. I'm thinking of interesting ways to use them. You'll probably come up with lots of ideas, I'd love if you shared them.

Here's another one you might consider, a slip stitch pattern. It gives a basketweave effect, is fun to knit and is similar to one that ArtLady posted (thank you Dollyce).

I'd like to try that one next, salmonmac. I looked at it earlier, but the 2 colors scare me. Lol. I'm knitting the mitered one in variegated now, will try the 2 colors next. Thank you very much!!

That's the little secret about slip stitch patterns. You only knit with one color at a time but the finished piece looks much more complicated. Enjoy your different patterns, it's great experience and fun.
