Welcome to the second collection of patterns for those of us burnt out by giftmas knitting. If you’re worn out and feeling the need for instant gratification in your knitting, here are some quick knitting patterns for dishcloths just for you!
Dishcloths can be good ways to try out new stitch patterns or construction. As they’re so small you can learn a lot very quickly. I learned how to knit lace from trying out some fancy dishcloths!

Here is one such pattern.
I don’t know if this was the one I tried a couple of years ago but it was one very similar if not. I picked it up and tried it out and fell in love with knitting lace leaves.
This is a quick and free pattern and would also make a great gift in a softer cotton – though I doubt many of you are thinking about gifts right now!

Another leaf-themed washcloths! Do you see a theme here?
This is a good way to try out some construction techniques. With increases and decreases, stockinette and garter, you’re all set to try out all sorts of things. It’s also adorable.

Now for something even more fun.
This washcloth comes out a bit small but aside from that it’s my favourite pattern. It’s fun to knit and seems unlikely to work until suddenly you’re set with a lovely spiky star cloth.
It’s also a great way to try out short rows.

Hey, this pattern is nuts! Get it? Get it? Nuts? Hazelnuts?
This is simple yet fun to do and it’s a chance to try out a new stitch pattern that is less common. It would grow like a growing thing and you’d be washing your dishes or your face with desperate excitement in no time at all!

If you’re a fantasy fan I can’t imagine you resisting this one.
Despite how it looks, this is an extremely easy pattern. It’s only purls and knit stitches. Very easy, very simple and fun.
