Zig Zag Dishcloth

Zig Zag dishcloth

Decorating my kitchen with new dishclothes is always a fun activity. It also allows me to try new stitches while creating something useful for my household. The Zig Zag dishcloth uses a zig zag stitch that looks great on a dishcloth but would also look fantastic on a larger size item such as a blanket.

  1. Anyone know if it is possible to make this larger like for a place mat???

  2. Yes, you can definitely make it larger. Cast on a multiple of 6 stitches+ 8 for the garter stitch border. For a place mat, I would cast on 68, work the instructions as written, it should work ok.

  3. This pattern is adorable and thank you for sharing!

    I would like to know what knit stitch that you used.

    Thank you!!!
