Lovely dishcloth

I thought that knitting a dishcloth was the last thing I would ever want to do. And I may never be willing to actually use this to scrape lasagna off a plate. But it turns out that dishcloths are nice in-between projects, and a good chance to try something different.

I am madly in love with this dishcloth, actually! The color is better than this picture shows. It is mercerized cotton and has a nice sheen to it. And the stitch pattern is the kind I like best: simple stitching that give sunexpectedly complex-looking results.

This is:

Row 1: knit
Row 2: knit
Row 3: K2, then k1p1 across, ending with K2
Row 4: K2, then k1p1 across, ending with K2

How does that make all this complex loveliness? I don't know. But I love it!

I thought the same thing, but for some reason people love getting them as gifts too so I always try to keep a few on hand.
