Boxy Dishcloth

Download this pattern now for free

A waffle stitch pattern is used for this dishcloth. It has great scrubbing ability with its garter stitch ridges. Each side has a unique pattern so it looks good from any angle. By slipping the first stitch of every row and purling the last stitch, the 2 side edges maintain an attractive appearance and the dishcloth lays flat and square without the need for a border.
