I would like to knit dishcloths also NEW
by: Anonymous

I would love to be able to make dishcloths also on a loom if anyone knows what loom to get and how to do them so they are thin using one strand of cotton. I have several looms but none work for dishcloths they require bulky yarns. I have tried to knit them and get about done and drop a stitch and cannot figure out how to fix it, so thought I could maybe find a fine gauge loom. Thank you

dish clloths on knit board
by: Anonymous

I found this post helpful. I amlookinh to make some dishcloths with peaches on cream on my old" knitting jenny" similar to today's knitting boards.

I would like to use only one side as you say. Is there any you tube video out here on how to start.

As well I see you could potential use a round loom as well. Its been fascinating to see a revival of these looms!

Using Nifty Knitters for making dishclothes.

I have made several on the blue 24 peg - as a flat panel. (say, 23 pegs) good size for me -

I have use 2 strands of #4 worsted, (say red heart) or one strand of chunky (# 5 or 6)

But! cool thing to do is grab some tulle - cut @ 1/2 strips - and "loom" those in also every row or 2 or 3 - (cut the strips about 1 loom circumference and a third more)

just add it to a row, no real need to knot it unless you want to

gives you an added scrubby effect!
