Learn how to knit a farmhouse kitchen dishcloth with this simple pattern perfect for the beginner knitter.
It’s time again for another instalment of our cozy living series, hosted by my friend Jennifer at Town & Country Living. I always look forward to seeing the cozy inspiration that everyone has to share each month! And, with plenty of months of Winter still ahead of us here in Canada, we need all the cozy we can get!
One of my favourite pastimes, especially through our cold Winter months is curling up with a basket of yarn and a pair knitting needles. There’s just something so cozy and satisfying about settling in on the couch with a knitting project on your lap, watching it grow with every row, creating something that’s both useful and beautiful!
I’ve had so many people tell me how much they’d love to learn to knit, but that it seems a daunting, overwhelming task to take on a project when they’ve never even held a pair of knitting needles. So, if you’re one of those people that has always wanted to try knitting, but just weren’t sure where to start, this one’s for you! Not only is this knit dishcloth a perfect beginner project, but I’ve broken it down step-by-step, right from the very first stitch to the last. I promise, knitting up this dishcloth is SO much easier than you’d think!
