These dishcloths are knitted on the diagonal & look gorgeous. I've used this pattern as a mindfulness (& productive) knitting project. There are many patterns online like this, but this is one of the easiest. These can be colour coded for different areas in the house (bathroom, kitchen) or used as dusters, face clothes or given as a gift?
What you need
Note: Each time you 'yarn over' (yo) you are creating an eyelet border (or hole) along the edge of the dishcloth while also increases each row by 1 stitch.
The reason you knit 2 together twice as you decrease & continue to do the 'yarn over' (yo) stitch is to maintain the eyelet or hole border edge while also decreasing 1 stitch for each row.
