FO | Totally Addicted

As I confessed earlier in the week, I’ve developed a strange obsession for dishcloths and other small things knit in reversible stitch patterns.

I can’t seem to stop knitting them. As I write this, I have one recent reversible cloth and several older ones, along with another on the needles. Plus plans for more, possibly many, many more. In yellow. And green. And blue. And ...

In the past, sweaters were my primary obsession focus. Now, I seem to be turning into a small-thing knitter.

Why didn’t someone warn me? Is it curable? Do I need a doctor? A therapist? A smudge stick?

It may already be too late. Because, yes, I seem to be totally addicted.

Here's the proof, and yes, it's yet another dishcloth. The front:

The back:

The stripey siblings:


(Yet Another) Red, White & Reversible Dishcloth/Hotpad
Reversible Pattern: Swedish Weave (with seed stitch border)
Yarn: Four Seasons (Classic Elite)
Weight: Worsted
Yardage: less than 1 skein (50 yards +/-)
Needles: US 7 (4.5mm)
Ravelry Notes: Here


Don't forget to visit Tami's Amis to see what everyone else is up to. Have a great weekend.

  1. I think it's very easy to see why these would be so addictive. They're really, really cute. I still haven't knit anything for my kitchen, but I'm hoping to bump a project like this to the top of my list.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. While I'm quick to spot every flaw, I'm rather fond of them myself.

      These quick knits are seriously addictive. Consider yourself duly warned!

  3. Oh I love the third picture. Something about red and white that make for a crisp and fresh feeling :) And oh yes, blue please too!

    1. "Crisp and fresh" - what a great description. Blue, too, you say? Are you by any chance an enabler?!

  4. What do you knit them in? I have always wanted to make them but would probably be way too scared to use them!

    1. So far, I've used Classic Elite Four Seasons (70% cotton, 30% wool). Unfortunately, it's been discontinued, so I'll have to hunt around and find an alternative. I like cotton better when it's blended with a bit of wool.

      Yep, me too. I'm reluctant to use them, but others rave about how well theirs perform.

    2. Neglected to mention that I also use Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (80% cotton, 20% wool), which is a nice weight with a great range of colors.

  5. I love red & white in the kitchen and love how your new dishcloths have turned out. I've not had much success with dishcloths myself but maybe this pattern will change that for me.

    1. Thank you, Evelyn. Have to admit, I haven't had much success with dish or spa cloths until recently. With knitting, there's always something new to learn, isn't there?
