Happy New Year! Let's clean

Every new year, I feel the urge to give my house a good cleaning. I am not a shabby cleaner normally but stuff seems to pile up at the end of the year. It seems, I usually start in the kitchen and I noticed that my dishcloths are getting kinda yucky looking. Some have even managed to get into the garbage disposal and got chewed up. :(  What's a girl to do? Make some new ones of course and share the new pattern with all of you!

Introducing the Scrap Buster Dishcloth!! Ta-da!!


Size 9, 5.5mm Straight needles
WW cotton yarn such as Lily Sugar ‘N Cream less than 1 oz. (.7oz to be exact)
Tapestry needle


Finished cloth measures approx. 7.5 x 7.5in
4 K stitches per inch
Stitch pattern of 3 +1 + any edge stitches you may wish


CO= cast on
BO= bind off
Psso= pass slipped stitch over knitted stitches


1. This dishcloth is worked back and forth. You will turn after every row
2. When you see this, “repeat from *to*”, work everything between the * for the specified amount of times
3. You should be able to get 2 dishcloths out of every ball of yarn. BONUS!
