    I'm not very good at knitting, and I can do this - as long as you get the concept of short row shaping, you'll do fine.

    (disclaimer: I don't knit; it's on my long list of things to learn.) But are you knitters and crocheters really able to use something so pretty as a dishcloth?

    I do! I love knitted dishcloths for washing dishes, and the smaller/lighter ones for spoiling myself in the shower! I'll not go back to terrycloth ones any time soon.

    I stopped buying scrubbies after I figured out how to knit them.

    That is why I taught myself crochet and knitting so I could make dishcloths to use (could not find them anywhere.... )
    Some of my friends and family I gave them to dont want to use them they are to pretty... I said that is what makes doing dishes easier a pretty dishcloth.... I can always make more...

    yep - you leave one on and turn. Then slip the first stitch of the next row -- each row you leave one more stitch on before you turn. . . so each row you are knitting gets shorter and shorter, until you get to row 24, when you knit all the stitches you'd skipped.

    ~Oh it's so pretty! I haven't progressed past the simple Grandma's pattern but I want to try this one.
    Guess I'll have to watch some more videos.
    Knitted dishcloths are the best. Nothing works better or feels so nice to use. ~
