I like to knit dishcloth because it's fast and fun. It's a great way for beginning knitters to learn new stitch patterns. It's not a big deal if you make a few mistakes, after all you won't be wearing it anywhere. Just keep practice until you get it right.

Materials:

1. Worsted weight cotton yarn in colors of your choice (a 50 gm-ball can make 3-4 dishcloths depending on the size.

2. Knitting needle size US #8 (5mm)

3. Row counter

4. stitch markers
