For many knitters and crocheters, buying ‘dish cloth cotton’ is much the same as buying sock yarn. Discovering a basket of it tucked quietly in a corner at a local yarn store can be a challenge to walk past, without picking up a ball or two for your shopping basket. It makes for the perfect ‘impulse purchase’!
Generally speaking, dishcloth cotton is well priced, available in a range of fun, bright colours, and anyone who considers themself to be a yarn lover/collector can always find a use for it. Dishcloths are incredibly practical and knit up quickly, making them fantastic for gift giving. And despite being commonly called, ‘dish cloth cotton’, this beloved yarn isn’t strictly just for dishes anymore!
King Cole has recently launched a cotton yarn that is unlike anything that is typically considered ‘dish cloth cotton’. With a gentle, thread-like texture spun into the yarn, King Cole’s Big Value Dish Cloth and Craft Cotton is exactly what you need for stubborn grime on dishes, or for when you feel the need to add a little extra ‘scrub’ to your bath routine.
Along with the launch of this new yarn comes a free pattern that includes seven designs, intended for the tub. This pattern includes includes a bathmat, a loofah, a facecloth, a bath mitt and even a neck pillow for those long soaks in the bath! With the recommended yarn being easy to wash, each of these items would make for the perfect quick, indulgent knit for oneself, or a thoughtful (and useful!) hostess gift. Since gift season is only just around the corner now, be sure to download your copy today!
