Dishcloth Derby

What a pile of dishcloths we have here for the String Scrubbie Project. These things are quick and so much fun to make, won't you make a few for a good cause? Here are some of the ones I've made so far out of Lion Cotton and Sugar'n Cream worsted weight cotton yarns.

A. A simple knitted black textured cloth using the pattern that came with the ball of Lion Kitchen Cotton, which can also be found here. B. This one is Grandmother's Favorite, found here, and I recently found it here too, a simple knitted cloth using garter stitch on the diagonal. C. A 2-color knitted slip stitch pattern. Find it here. D. Another slip stitch pattern using 2 colors, pattern here.

E. This crocheted cloth is made from a popular afghan stitch pattern. F. This crocheted cloth is called Navajo Ripples and can be found here. G. Spike Stitch wash cloth crochet pattern is here. H. This one is a knitted basket stitch pattern of my own design, and here is the pattern.
