Trinity Heart Dishcloth - FREE Pattern!

As usual, grab your favorite cotton yarn (worsted weight) and your favorite knitting needles (US 5-7) and cast on for this trinity of hearts dishcloth or washcloth, whatever you want to use it for. The three nested hearts can symbolize whatever you - Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow or The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit or the Dad, Mom, and new Baby. For the example, I used Peaches and Cream yarn in Red and size 6 needles.

Basket Rib Dishcloth - Free Pattern!

The example was knit with Sugar 'n Cream Stripes yarn in Lime Stripes, but any worsted weight cotton or cotton blend yarn can be used. With one 2 oz ball of yarn and size 6 (4mm) needles you should be able to knit two of these. Example is 7" square. Feel free to use larger or smaller needles to suit your style. Gauge isn't important, but you'll get a larger cloth with larger needles.

Cast on 34 stitches.

Row 1: Knit across
Row 2: K2, P30, K2
Row 3: (K2, P2) 8x, K2
Row 4: K4, (P2, K2) 6x, P2, K4

Repeat rows 1-4 10 more times, for a total of 11 repeats (44 rows).
Row 45: Knit across
Bind off. Weave in ends.

For optional hanging loop, bind off all but the last knit stitch. Slip last stitch onto G/4mm crochet hook. Chain 12, slip stitch to first chain, secure and weave in ends.
