I still have the first set of basket stitch dishcloths I ever knitted in the kitchen. I made them almost 7 years ago and they still look great.

These dishcloths are great for all sorts of kitchen cleanups. I use them for washing glasses, scrubbing down the kitchen counters, and wiping down cabinets. I've even used them on the floor a few times to clean up some sticky spots left by the kids.

Yarn: Kitchen cotton yarn. I used Peaches and Creme cotton yarn, color Purple Petunia.

Size 8 needles.

Cast on 32.

Knit 4 rows.

Pattern:

Rows 1 through 4: K 4, *K 4, P 4*, K 4.

Rows 5 through 8: K 4, *P 4, K 4*, K 4.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until desired length. Knit 4 rows. Cast off and weave in ends.
