Dishcloths for Charity

One of my local yarn shops is hosting a monthly charity knitting project.  For August we are knitting cotton dishcloths for Honduras.  A friend of the yarn shop owner goes to Honduras on missions to build houses and wanted to bring something to give the girls and women there as a special gift.  More about the charity project can be found on the Seaside Yarn blog here.

I thought that the charity project sounded really great, and dishcloths are nice to knit as a break from other projects.  I have been loving knitting these, and wish that I had more colors!  It’s fun to see how each color-way works up different every time.  I also just like having something mindless and easy to knit while I am relaxing and watching a movie at night.  Each dishcloth takes a few hours to knit up.

The pattern that I used was the classic “Grandma’s Favorite Dishcloth.”

I modified the pattern in three ways.

  1. I only knitted until there were 38 rows.  I don’t enjoy the larger dishcloths as much, I think that the bulk gets in the way of cleaning so I made these a little smaller.
  2. After I was done increasing I knit two rows (keeping with garter stitch) because I didn’t like how pointy I felt the edges were when it went straight to decrease rows.
  3. I added a little handle!  I think the handles are adorable.  After I was down to 4 stitches I just kept with the garter stitch until I felt that when folded over the handle was long enough to hang on a nail.  I think it’d be nice to have a little space to hang up dishcloths by the sink so they don’t get as sticky as fast and can dry properly.

All in all I’m quite pleased with how they turned out!  Now to make some for myself…

    I’ve had that dishcloth pattern printed since 2005, no lie. It’s one of my favorites as well! I’m going to cast one on this afternoon just for the heck of it, I’ll report back as to how your modifications went compared to what I remember of the original (I totally made an ugly pepto bismol pink one back in the day, I recall it fondly!).
