Cherry Pie Knit Dishcloth Pattern

This pattern has been in the family for a while, but I didn't like the original pattern name (Round Knit Dishcloth. Boring!) so I switched it up. I was inspired by the Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton in Hot Pepper I was using . The color may be Hot Pepper, but I think each section looks like a pie slice, so Cherry Pie it is!

There are a few "tricks" to this pattern.

Clear as mud? Good! Let's knit!

Grandma's Favorite Knit Dishcloth Pattern

Today's dishcloth pattern is a family favorite. I'm sure you've seen it before. A simple, classic knit dishcloth that is worked from corner to corner. This is the dishcloth I remember my grandmothers and mother using. It's been passed down to me and now I'm passing it along to you!

I used this gorgeous Cotton Hemp yarn from Martha Stewart Craft's collection for Lion Brand. The color is peacock and it's a slightly bluer version of a peacock feather. As with all Martha Stewart's products, the colors are rich and beautiful.

Belle Pointelle Knit Dishcloth Pattern

The Belle Pointelle is a "fit in the palm of your hand" kind of dishcloth. It's smaller than what I normally use, but it's nice to have one small enough to clean the inside of a drinking glass. This uses yarn-overs and decreases to create an openwork pointelle pattern. Because the edges start to curl when finished, I added a crochet border. If you don't crochet, don't worry. The border is completely optional.

This was knit with Bernat Handicrafter Cotton DeLux yarn in Navy. I can't find the DeLux on their website, but there are quite a few options for Bernat Handicrafter Cotton on Amazon.

Lemon Swirl Knit Dishcloth Pattern

Because I love a good "twist" (See what I did there?), I'm sharing this Lemon Swirl knit dishcloth pattern.  I love round dishcloths. Square ones are so…well, you get the idea.

I used Peaches & Creme Yarn in Sunshine. So bright and happy! There are a few things about this dishcloth that I like, one being the open spaces. That way crumbs can fall through when rinsing. This pattern uses a crochet edge to finish. If you don't crochet, just finish after binding off.

The Hive Knit Dishcloth Pattern

I was looking for a super scrubby knit stitch that would knock out the dirtiest dish. This one does a great job! Thanks to Lion Brand for this amazing yarn. Not only do I love the Kiwi color, I love how easy Kitchen Cotton is to work with. It's soft on the hands, but can still get the job done in the kitchen, bathroom, or any area you need to get squeaky clean. The stitch reminded me of honeycomb, so The Hive it is!

Cupcake Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Evidently I was hungry when I created this pattern. A Cupcake Crochet Dishcloth can't take the place of dessert, but it can certainly clean up after it. Now to find a snack…

I used  Peaches & Creme Bright Pink for this loverly dishcloth. It's smaller than most of the dishcloths I make, so it's probably perfect since I like my dishcloths huge!

To keep track of stitches, I divided them by cupcakes and frostings. So when you're counting your "stitches" at the end of the row, you'll count these instead.

Aren't they cute? I just love the cupcake crochet stitch. Hopefully you will too!

Tea Rose Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

In planning this pattern, I wondered if all my crochet pals were jealous of the round knit dishcloths I had made. I had to be fair and create one just for them, so the Tea Rose crochet dishcloth was born.

I think these turn out so pretty! I'd love to crochet a few in different colors/sizes and do an installment on my kitchen wall. Just add a loop at the end to hang with.

For my sample, I used my favorite cotton yarn, Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton in Vanilla. It's a beautiful off-white that looks like undyed cotton.

Very Berry Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

I'm a sucker for a textured dishcloth and this Very Berry crochet pattern does not disappoint! Just look at all that scrubby goodness waiting to be put to good use.

I used Peaches 'n' Creme yarn in this beautiful raspberry color for this crocheted dishcloth. It uses the Jeobneun Stitch found in Robyn Chachula's Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia. Not going to lie, this stitch takes some getting used to. But once you've got it, it works up fast and is great for scrubbing!

American Flag Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

I am super excited for July's dishcloths because the yarn is sponsored by none other than Lion Brand! I've used Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton in previous posts and can't say enough good things about its quality. It's some of the softest cotton I've worked with and comes in 14 delicious colors like Bubblegum and Cayenne.

Since we're celebrating Independence Day, I thought it fitting to use this beautiful yarn that's made right here in the USA for my American Flag Dishcloth.

The retro-inspired colors of Kitchen Cotton I used are Hot Pepper, Vanilla, and Blueberry. Worked into a wave pattern, it's almost like the dishcloth is billowing in the breeze.
