Cotton yarn is usually used to make most dishcloth patterns. However, there can also be cotton blends that are suitable for these patterns. For example, the Knit Picks website has a variety of cotton yarns and blends available for different dishcloth patterns, such as 100 percent cotton and 75 percent Pima cotton with 25 percent acrylic.
This site also has a good variety of dishcloth patterns, which when clicked takes customers to a page with that gives the different types of cotton yarns that are suitable for the particular pattern. There also is information provided on the specific pattern design, such as difficulty level, yardage required and size of the finished piece.
However, knitters looking for a pattern that requires 100 percent natural cotton yarn can visit the Favecrafts site. Precise information on the materials and knitting instructions needed for this project are provided on this site.
