Gladys – Dishcloths are a quick, satisfying knit that doesn’t require a whole lot of yarn while allowing you to try out new stitches and build on your skills. Dishcloths also make a wonderful housewarming or holiday gifts! Wrap them up with some ribbon, and you’re good to go. If you’re feeling entrepreneurial, they’re great for craft fairs – low time, cost, & effort to make!
Drop a photo of your dishcloth in the rhyFlower Knits Facebook Group or the #dishclothmadness tag on social media! ♥
