My great grandma had some dish clothes with a top and a button that allowed her to fasten it to the handle on the fridge or the stove. I only knit and looked for a knit pattern, but could never find one.

Does anyone know how to make one of these?

I like knit and crochet dishcloths. I only know how to crochet, would like to learn to knit. Some of my dishcloths do double as a pan grabber.I have cast iron pans, and I even made my husband a believer in crocheted dishcloths.  Wink

I usually crochet most things, but I like knitting the dishrags, for one thing to me crocheted ones are a bit thick & the ones I have made you have to put the edging on after you make the body. Where when I make my knit ones it's all done at the same time. But I might try some new patterns. I just need it to be easy ones not to diffcult. It'll be fun trying new designs.  I have knitted & crocheted hot pads & they are thicker & I do like that.

How do you knit hot pads? I was getting conflicting information. I've seen people make them, but everyone online they strongly warn against making knitted hotpads because they can burn your hand and the yarn can melt or shatter in your hand.

I made a hotpad out of 100% cotton for my brother.  It was quite thick.  So far it seems to be holding up well.  I would probably stay away from acrylics -- they might melt.

Not sure about knitted hot pads -- the only pattern I used was a crochet one.

I am excited to make some dishcloths. I am really into knitting them right now. I enjoy knitting ones that have words or pictures in them when they are finished. I crochet dishcloths too but I like the way knit ones look. I dont mind receiving either type. I love to see what other people come up with Wink

If my future partner would also like to swap a hotpad or two as extras, I'm game!

Also, if someone needs to have two partners to balance it all out, I volunteer!
