Dish Cloths are handy. They can wash the dishes. In fact it is more sanitary to wash the dishes with a fresh dish cloth than it is to keep using that old kitchen sponge. Dish cloths are also great for wiping up spills, such as when you splatter milk while adding it to cereal, or when you accidentally over fill your coffee cup. Dish cloths are also wonderful for wiping down the table and the counter tops. They can even help you to clean your stove top.
Dish cloths are always there when you need them, for what ever you may need them for. Knitted dish cloths are great. They are soft yet have a scrubbing quality that gets anything stuck on off. They are also durable. Yarn is a very strong type of string that does not break easily. Your dish cloth would have to be cut in order to come apart.
Making your own dish cloths is simple. If you know how to knit you can easily create many beautiful dishcloths for the price of the yarn. Yarn is cheap. You can choose from a whole range of different colors and varieties. Yarn can be purchased at any department store in the craft section, or at your local craft supply store.
The first thing to do to begin making your dish cloth is to choose the color you want it to be. This is a great way to add to your kitchen décor. If your kitchen is rose and blue then choose a rose or blue yarn, or a rose and blue yarn, mixed. Choose colors that will compliment the colors of your kitchen.
Once you know what colors, or colors you will be making it’s time to gather your supplies. You’ll need the yarn, knitting needles, and some free time. That’s it! Choose a size ten or so knitting needle for a not too big and not to small knit.
Dish cloths are generally square. Consider this as you plan your rows. You’ll want to cast on a certain amount of rows, and then knit that same amount of rows. Say twelve. Cast on twelve and then knit twelve rows. You will have a small dish cloth. If you want your dish cloth to be larger increase the amount of rows you both cast on, and knit.
Once you have knit all of the rows it’s time to tie it off. Make sure to tie your knots securely. You don’t want your dish cloth to come unraveled when your washing it in the machine, or using it because of a loose knot. Once you’re done you’re done! Knitting is fun and quick. You can make several home made knitted dish cloths in no time at all.
Dish cloths are handy kitchen items. Knitting is a craft and hobby loved and done by many. If you know how to knit and need dish cloths then knitting your own is a great option! All you need is yarn, knitting needles and a bit of free time. Make as many as you’d like and do it for far less than you’d spend buying dish cloth sets at the store. Knitted dish cloths are durable and have a wide range of cleaning uses! Thanks for reading and take care!
