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.

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. :D
Knitted dishcloths are the best. Nothing works better or feels so nice to use. :thumb: ~

Lots of lefties knit! Here's one video:
There are lots more on YouTube and other instructions elsewhere. Don't be shy, give it a try!

Ow that makes sense... so what is it talking about in the begining about the edging? that confuses me also
thanks for explaining...

Which part of the beginning?

On the one row, you cast on a stitch, then immediately bind it off- that forms the picot.

On the other row, you slip the first stitch (that pulls the picot more to a point), then knit one stitch - then yarn over (this forms the lacy, open portion) and then knit the next 2 stitches together (so you end up with the same amount of stitches in the row)
