Many years ago when I first saw knitted dishcloths on the internet I laughed. I could not understand why you should knit dishcloths. So, I googled and found that the internet is full of them, and free-patterns are everywhere. So of course I had to try them out. And since then we have used no other dishcloths. They are knitted in
cotton and they go in the washing machine every week.
This is a new batch since the others are rather worn out now and will be used for heavier duty in the garage and garden.
