My dishcloths being a little worn and faded, I decided to knit a few more. And I found this pretty free pattern.
I used an acrylic and cotton blend yarn to see whether the dishcloths would be less subject to distortion. I actually shared a photo of the process on instagram:
I really like the stitch of this dishcloth pattern. The knitting stitch is made of 4 rows. It is very easy to knit as it only uses the two basic stitches.
As for the yarn I used, the fiber is 55% cotton, 45% acrylic and it does allow the dishcloth to keep its shape better once wet. However, it’s also less absorbent than the 100% cotton yarn. I like that it dries quickly on my countertop, so there won’t be too many germs.
I guess yarn containing more cotton fiber would be great… How about you ? Did you find the « perfect mix » for knitted discloths?
