I love a dishcloth pattern with a nice pronounced texture to it. It helps when scrubbing the counter top or dishes. I have made quite a few knitted dishcloths, but none with a texture like this one. I am looking forward to trying this pattern. Thanks for sharing with us!

I have never seen this stitch before and I had to watch the video to understand how it was done. Not hard but the video helped. I would think this would texture to the washcloth which always is a plus. I make dishcloths as opposed to buying them so this would be a nice addition to my collection. It is pretty too as well as efficient. Thank you.

I make lots of dishcloths and this is one of the prettiest. The daisy stitch is a good one to add once you know how to knit and purl. Dishcloths or washcloths are the perfect project to use to tryout new stitches and gain proficiency. I love that a video is included. There is no substitute for seeing how it is done no matter how clear the directions.

I have been trying to increase my stitch repertoire and this will be a very pretty and practical way to add the daisy stitch! I'll also be able to add it to the gift collection I'm making for my children's house warming package. It will be inexpensive as well because I often find cotton yarn at my local charity shoppes.

The daisy knit stitch Washcloth is one for all beginners to try. The pattern is easy and simple. Cotton yarn is the preferred choice of yarn and it really works up beautifully. These are great for gifts and you can make them in all sorts of colors. There is a lot of different cotton yarns out available at different craft stores. Have fun and enjoy.

Pretty washcloth to practice both knitting and crochet. The author includes a video tutorial on knitting the daisy stitch and it couldn't be easier. For people new to pattern knitting, this simple project is a great way to get your feet wet and to practice your newly learned skills. For experienced knitters, the repetition of the pattern keeps it from becoming boring. Happy knitting.

This pattern is called is not. It is cumbersome and time consuming. Many other pretty patterns that are truly easy!
