Free Knit Pattern: Double Brick Flip Dishcloth
I’m having a great time with all of the garter stitches in my new-to-me vintage needlework book. Like last week’s free pattern, this design is not difficult despite the double-bricks. Slipped stitches and garter stitch keeps it simple. Best of all, no ends to weave in!
You will need cotton yarn in two contrasting colors. I used Size 8 needles for a gauge of approximately 4 stitches/inch. The finished size is a generous 10″ square.
To begin, CO 51 stitches with green.
Row 1 (RS): With green, K to end.
Row 2 (WS): With green, K to end. Do not tie off.
Row 3: With white, K 3, *sl 1, K 3* to end.
Row 4 and all alternating rows: With same color of previous row, K all K stitches and sl all sl stitches keep yarn at front.
Row 5: With green, K 1, *sl 1, K 3* to last 2 stitches, sl 1, K 1.
Row 7: With white, K 2, *sl 1, K1* to last st, K last st.
Row 9: With green, as 3
Row 11: With white, as 5
Row 13: As 1
Row 15: With white, as 5
Row 17: With green, as 3
Row 19: As 7
Row 21: As 5
Row 23: As 3
Repeat these 24 rows 3 times more.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 once more. Bind off in K.
Garter stitch is great for dishclothes because it looks great front and back.
