I think the Drexel knitted dishcloth pattern is one of the prettiest dishcloth patterns I have designed. It just screams spring and summer to me. The little patches of seed stitch remind me of flowers or flower beds. That makes me happy because gardening is on my short list of favorite things, right behind knitting.
I use the square foot gardening method with raised beds and my garden is what inspired this cloth.
If you are a new knitter and have been a little intimidated by seed stitch, the Drexel knitted dishcloth pattern will ease you into becoming a seed stitch pro.
I don’t mean to imply that seed stitch is hard. It is a series of Knit 1, Purl 1 stitches. It can just take a bit of practice to get used to switching back and forth. With this Drexel pattern, you only switch 3 or 4 times in each series so it is good practice without being daunting. Once you practice seed stitch, you will probably come to love its beauty and rhythm as I have.
The rest of the stitches are simple knit & purl stitches and garter stitch. With just patches of seed stitch in the pattern, it still works up quick and easy…a trademark of all Knit So Easy patterns.
I would love the see the colors you choose for Drexel. The blue in the pictures is knit with Knit Picks Dishie and the yellow one is Hobby Lobby I Love this Cotton.
