I taught myself to knit with www.knittinghelp.com -- I imagine making a dishrag is a lot like making a scarf.  Choose your yarn and make a square with it.  Good luck!

I've never used these patterns, but they don't look too terrible:

Try googling knit pattern dish cloth.  A ton of them showed up.  Just sift through and find the one you like!

Once someone shows you how to cast on, move your yarn from front to back and vice versa, make the knit stitch and the purl stitch you can
Cast on (aka CO) 37 stitches with size 8 needles (or what ever is close)
knit (aka K) all 37
K 37
K37
(K3, Purl 31 (aka P), K3
K37)
repeat these 2 rows over and over until it's big enough
Then K 3 rows plain (that just means knit all the stitches)
This will make a nice little cloth with a cute little border, it's easy, teaches you the basics and looks real impressive.

Good luck!

This will make a very nice little cloth
