Wow, this is fantastic! Thanks for all the links from another washcloth addict.
Thank you so much, I had googled, and clicked everything on knittingpatterncentral, because I thought I had bookmarked the baby feet pattern.
Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for putting these all together! I was wondering if you could tell me which pattern the beige and purple one is at the top of the page 🙂 appears to be a variation on Grandma’s 🙂 Thanks!
The link to the Two Way Dishcloth is wrong. It is;
Click to access two-way_dishcloth.pdf
You linked to the Domino cloth twice by mistake.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. 🙂 The link has been corrected.
aloha, I just wanted to thank you so much for the patterns.. I have a new grandson and I wanted to make some washcloths for him.. and your site is the best.. My sister loves palm trees. I have made two of them.. thats her christmas present.. Thanks so much.. I just love them. Its my first time doing somthing like this in knitting.. and I love it.. thanks thanks thanks.. have a great day.. Blossom
Thank you for your compliments on the site. I am glad you are enjoying the patterns listed there.
Thank goodness for your site. I just had an 11 yr old and her mother request my help with knitting a round dish cloth. I told them sure
I am glad you enjoy my site and find it useful. 🙂
Please forgive my slowness to respond. In addition to being the Mom of a teenager, I work outside the home full time. This means that a lot of time email time gets squeezed in between other activities.
I see comments about a palm tree washcloth, but must be overlooking it….what is it called? SOOOO, glad I found this!!!
It was not the easiest link to find from the Knit Cloths page. It is listed on the Plant Cloths page.
You can go directly to it here:
It is the fourth pattern down on the right. Click on it and you will be directed to choose a program to use to download a copy of the pattern.
I hope this answers your question.
you are the woman.(i think. you are a woman, if you’re not…you da man!)
Thanks for the compliment!!
Thank you so much for the alphabet cloths, it was time for me to do another round of dishclothes as Christmas gifts, now I can do something different. The pattern is so simple to do I can do them at work in between customers. I use a circular needle at work, it takes up less space and I don’t have to worry about dropping or losing one.
Thanks for linking to my dc pattern! 🙂
still looking for the mother to be dish cloth, i can not locate the pattern here,,,,,,,,,,,, would love to have it by next week as my daughter is ready to deliver her little one,,,,,,,,,, being a new grandma , and would love something in that order, or any other ideas for baby dish or warsh cloths.
I have done a search on Google of my files and cannot find it. This bothers me because I am sure there is one out there.
I will keep looking for it when time allows.
If you belong to an email knitting related group you might try asking there because at the moment I am stumped.
For ideas for baby dish or wash cloths you might look at some of the sites listed on this page:
Thanks for the collection of dish/wash cloth pattern.
You are welcome. I am glad you like it.
Just wanted to update the link to “Planned Purlhood – The Dishcloth”, I’ve created a new domain for PP. The new link is http://plannedpurlhood.com/blog/?page_id=159
Thank you for adding my patterns onto your list..I appreciate it more than words can say! Can’t wait to see all the others you have up there, as well!
Thank you thank you!
I am still looking for a dishcloth with a sea shell on it. It looks to me like it would be easy for an expert. I have tried; but I end up in a muddle. I am enjoying the patterns you have presented. Thanks.
Thanks always for the link to my BLOG! I really appreciate it as I receive lots of hits from this terrific blog.
I did have a question, an odd one maybe… how does one design those dishcloths with the knit and purl sts that makes a design in the middle? Can you use a chart. I mean draw it ahead of time? Or do you have to sit there and create them stitch by stitch? Dumb question maybe, because the people who design them have much more knowledge on the subject than I. I just would love to be able to draw a design ahead and then learn how to figure out what stitch is knit and what is purl. =)
Would you please tell me what the name of the pattern is for the dishcloth at the top of this website (purple and white weaved). Thank you!
The purple and white dishcloth is made from the Ballband pattern. The original pattern is from the Elmore-Pisgah site.
It can also be found in the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. You can also find it on the paper wrapper of a cone or ball of Peaches & Creme 100% cotton yarn.
looking for knitted washcloth with ropes and ladders pattern…olly
I LOVE this site. I cant Knit fast enough for all the beautiful things i see. I wish I was a better Knitter. I am having problems with two sided knit patterns. The squares seem to confuse me sometimes, but then again at 61 it isnt hard. Being Rheumatoid I find this is also great therapy when i cant do other things. Thank you for letting me look at this wonderful site.
Please forgive me for not replying sooner. Life has been a bit more busy than usual and there has not been computer time.
Thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad you like the site. Being able to knit with Rheumatoid arthritis is quite an accomplishment in my book.
You are also brave to knit two sided patterns. It has been years since I have done it.
Have a great day!
I’m looking for a pattern with a sea or conch shell pattern for cotton wash cloths. Can anyone please help. I’m really addicted to making them & would like to do a nautical theme. Thank you.
I am trying to find some help on how to do the ballband dishcloth. I am a novice knitter and know how to do knit/purl but not sure how to bring the second color in the project or what I should do with it when I need to knit/purl the primary color. Can anyone help me out? I appreciate it. Thanks.
These are all really great. Thanks!
Do you know if purple duckie and rainyk change their sites?
There url isn’t coming up.
Love this site! Do you know of any hockey or lacrosse patterns free or for a fee? Thanks! Kelly
this is so excellent i have managed to find patterns to do each day of the week for the grandbabes
Hi! I wanted to add a face cloth pattern to your list. I’ve used so many of the patterns that I wanted to contribute to the fun. I designed a face cloth for Pi Day: 3/14. I used the Illusion/Shadow knitting method. Hope you enjoy it. Here’s the link: http://goodnightgram.wordpress.com/2010/03/29/pi-party/ Have fun with it!
I like the design that you use on the right in your header. Is there an actual pattern for this?
I JUST WANT TO THANK U FOR TAKE THE TIME TO PUT YOUR
PATTERNS ONLINE. I THINK THAT THEY ARE SO COOL. MAY GOD BLESS
U MY FRIEND
I don’t know how I found your site but I just bookmarked it because this article was awesome. Thanks!
This is fantastic. I actually took time out from my knitting to search for patterns and stumbled across this site. Love it! I am relatively new at knitting, but enjoy it so much. Thanks again!
I LOVE THE PATTERNS BUT AM HAVING A HORRIBLE TIME WITH THE TEXAS PART OF THE TEXAS LONGHORN PATTERN. I SO WANTED TO DO IT FOR MY DAUGHTER IN LAW FOR HER BIRTHDAY. THE A AND S IS NOT COMING OUT RIGHT. I HAVE GONE BACK AND REKNITTED IT 3 TIMES…STILL THE SAME…AM I MISSING SOMETHING??
I am glad you like my site.
The links here go to sites of other people. The patterns belong to the original designer and not to me.
It is the Ball band cloth located at the Peaches and Creme website.
You can find the link for it on the Kitchen, Bed and Bath Patterns Page of the site
Thank you. I am glad you like my site.
Thank you for your kind words. I am afraid I cannot help you since it is not a pattern I wrote. I do see that the designer’s email address is listed on the pattern page. My suggestion is that you write her or him directly for help. Good Luck!
Can you tell me the name of the pattern on the homepage of your website that is on the right-hand side…the offwhite/purple pattern? Thanks so much!
The pattern for the dishcloth on the top of the page is the
Ballband Cloth found on the site of the Pisgah Yarn and Dyeing Company:
It is the fourth pattern from the top
I do not knit dish cloths , but i find this a wonderful collection of patterns and fun ideas THANK YOU for this fantastic site
Thank you for your kind words! I appreciate them. I am glad you like my site.
