Hello and welcome back to my blog and if you’re new here I am so happy to have you! Today I am sharing a fun new knitting pattern – The Checkered Waves Knitted Dishcloth!
I’ve received some requests for a knitting pattern tutorial so I thought it would be fun to make this knitted dishcloth!
I love this pattern because the stitch combination creates a reversible fabric! The front of the piece shows of a quirky checkered wave pattern while the back features a perfect basket weave!
I really hope you enjoy this project as much as I did. To make your own check out the written pattern and video tutorial below!
