Colour of the day dishcloths


I’ve been knitting up Waldorf colour of the day dishcloths.

Mostly because we needed new dishcloths, but I also liked the idea of having a colour for each day. An easy way to remind myself to change to the next one!

And they are pretty!


The other reason is because I love knitting, but find it hard to work on a bigger project at the moment.

Having to set my knitting down regularly. So I wanted a project that was simple.


The pattern I am using is called Grandmother’s Favorite (a free pattern on Ravelry). It is super simple and quick to knit up.

I’m using cotton yarn from Knit Picks. I used a few different types because I was most interested in getting the colours I wanted.

I used Shine Worsted Yarn, Comfy Worsted Yarn and Dishie Yarn.


The texture you get from cotton yarn and this pattern works really well as a dishcloth.

And over time the dishcloths hold their shape well.


I’m off to finish up green now, then I will be onto blue and white *grin*

You can read about the colours of the day here and see how we have used them for our rhythm here and here.

Blessings, Kelly

      You crochet don’t you? These would be quick to whip up that way 🙂 and nice and textured which would be handy for the washing up!
