This cotton dishcloth is a quick and easy knit. It is simple, symmetrical, and the two stockinette bands at each end mimic a traditional dishcloth, hence the name ‘Copycat Dishcloth’. 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.
