Cute little sweater. Right? Wrong. This is Heidi Sunday’s sweater dishcloth, available for download here on Ravelry. It has most of the features of a short-sleeved cardigan. Except it has no back and instead of wear it you can scrub dirty dishes with it. It is shown here in Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream in the potpourri ombre colorway.
Why knit dishcloths and facecloths? To try new techniques. For some quick gratification. To fancy up a dirty job. To amaze and dazzle. Or, as here, to give some fellow knitter a good chuckle. 78 knitters on Ravelry have completed and posted this cutie on their project pages. 185 of us have the project in our queues and plan to knit it someday. I had a blast knitting it!
