I like hand knitted dishcloths, so much more than shop bought. I usually use the Grandmother's Favourite Dishcloth pattern but I decided I'd give the Wondrous Dishcloth by Jooles Hill a try this time.
This is a different type of dishcloth as it's double thickness and it's not a big as I usually like. I had a bit of trouble knitting it at first too, the pattern calls for you to knit certain stitches from the front and back of the work together and I got myself into all kinds of twists and turns until I finally figured out the best way to do it, and then it became much easier.
The cloth is textured on the front and smooth on the back, a little bit like a scrubby, and that's probably how I'll use these cloths. I think I do still prefer the old style, they don't call it Grandmother's Favourite for nothing, it's stood the test of time.
