Knitting patterns for Christmas stockings.

Knitted baby booties are a quick and easy project. There are many patterns to choose from.

Patterns to knit dishcloths from yarn, usually cotton.  Usually the patterns include garter stitch or a similar rough or bumpy stitch for scrubbing. Variations of knitted dishcloths include:



  • Spa cloths or washcloths made usually of cotton, linen or a blend.  These are often softer than dishcloths, and can be used for cleansing skin.  Acrylic yarns are avoided due to their abrasive tendencies —often too harsh for delicate skin.

  • Scrubbies are smaller thicker knitted or crocheted cloths, used in place of harsh scrubbers in dishwashing and cleaning.  See tawashi below.

  • Tawashi, a Japanese version of scrubbies.  These cute often brightly colored knit or crocheted scrubbies make a welcome addition to many kitchens.  When made of  acrylic yarn, they are particularly useful for scrubbing. Eco tawashi refer to acrylic tawashi where decreased or even no soap is needed.
