Knitted Dishcloth/Potholder

My Sew Crafty Project for this week (just barely slipped it in!):

A knitted dishcloth (actually more potholder size), this one made out of cotton so it's actually useable.

I love how those wash dishes so well. My friend made me some though and they are so pretty that I can't bring myself to use them!

I have a homemade knitted dishcloth. I really like it. It doesn't seem, by looking at it, that it's going to be very effective, but it is. Yours turned out well. Congratulations!
I learned how to crochet - and liked it - but never did get the hang of knitting. Maybe someday down the road I'll have to try again.

I got Learn to Knit lesson 1 from the library. It's a dvd so I could actually see someone knitting. That and the little video clips on knittinghelp.com really showed my how. If I can learn how to knit so can you. : )

If you just keep making those little squares in coordinating colors. Some day you will have: a place mat, a runner, a wall hanging, an afghan, and wa-lah! a whole bedspread or something. Have fun doing it.

Very nice wash cloth. I like the edging. Is the edge knitted or crocheted? Great job.

The edge is just knit two increase one going up. Then going back down it's knit one, decrease two stitches, increase then knit the rest of the row. Does that make sense?

I think 'potholder size' is just perfect for a dishcloth. I use mine (which I crochet) mostly for cleaning my counter tops. Ilike your knit version!
