The Parquet Dishcloth Pattern stitch is quite unique. I really like the stitch definition. Choosing a bright color when knitting up this dishcloth just makes the stitch definition pop. At first glance, the completed dishcloth looks like, as the name implies, parquet flooring. With that said, I have a short story to share…A good friend of mine and her husband decided to have their first home built shortly after getting married. She chose parquet flooring for her kitchen floor and mentioned she really liked the look. You can only guess which dishcloth pattern I chose to knit up for her housewarming gift toppers.
At first glance the novice knitter may think the Parquet Dishcloth Pattern too hard to try; however, this stitch pattern is just a simple mix of knit and purl stitches. Nothing scary there. On one of my Facebook posts, a few knitters suggested a cowl, scarf or throw using the Parquet stitch pattern. All great ideas.
Materials I used for the Parquet Dishcloth Pattern:
Lily/Sugar’n Cream; 100% Cotton. 120yrds/70.9g. Color: #01628/Hot Orange.
Size US6 (4.0mm) knitting needles.
17sts and 24 rows = 4″.
♥Once again, because I ROCK, the pattern includes the stitch pattern repeat.
♥As are all my knitting patterns; this pattern has been test knit twice and both professionally copy and tech edited for accuracy.
