Quick Knit Dishcloths

Having been dishwasher-less for nearly a year, I've become rather picky about my dishcloths.  Adding in a personal goal to become a better knitter, I've started making my own.  This pattern is a great refresher and is great for beginners.  They're so straightforward and quick, I can knit one in less than an hour (which is usually the downtime I have during naps).  Plus, you can customize the size for larger dishcloths or smaller for face washcloths.
You'll Need:

1 skein cotton yarn
Knitting needles (the larger the size, the larger the cloth will be with less stitches)
Yarn needle to finish off

K-knit
YO-Yarn over
K2tog-Knit two together

Cast on 4 stitches
Increasing section: K2, YO, K to end
(Continue pattern to desired number of stitches--I made my dishcloths 40 stitches across)
Decreasing section: K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, K to end, down to 4 stitches
Bind off and finish loose ends
Though dishcloths can't wash for you, they make easy work of a sink brimming with dirty dishes.
Squeaky clean!
