Dishcloths that use more than one color turn a simple ball of cotton yarn into a bottomless cup. Cloth after cloth comes from your needles, and yet the yarn never runs out.

When you can’t decide what dishcloth to knit, the Ballband is always there for you. Looks great in any color combination, including this sepiatone version. Uses less than half a skein of each color. Not just retro — classic.

The Long Beach Washcloth is a simple star stitch all-over pattern in alternating double-wide main color stripes and single-wide contrasting color stripes in three varieties. It would be a great way to experiment with color — maybe three related hues and one bold contrast, or three solids with a variegated main color. A lot of ends to weave in, but a really polished and highly textured result.

My stash of perfect-for-any-occasion gift washcloths is growing. And I’m not nearly burned out. There’s a tote bag of gorgeous cotton in my stash, and if I have anything to say about it, it’s not going to have a chance to cool down to room temperature.
