Shamrock Dishcloth

March 10th, 2010 · 5 Comments · knitting, patterns

Why yes, I’m still on the dishcloth knitting kick!  St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal around here because Pman thinks it’s his holiday.  So it only made sense to design and knit my second knitting pattern!  I hope that you enjoy knitting it, and it adds a little bit of St. Patty’s spirit to your kitchen, too.

The pattern’s after the jump, and if you prefer a .pdf version, scroll all the way to the bottom.



  • 1 ball of kitchen cotton (I used Sugar ‘n Cream Kitchen Cotton in Hot Green.)

Gauge—Don’t sweat it on this project.  Just match your needle size with your yarn to create a fabric that has a drape you like.
