Easy Knit Dishcloth / Washcloth
This pattern is pretty easy. You only need to know how to do a couple rows and then you pretty much repeat the rest of the time.
With the counts below, I ended up with a dishcloth that is about 6½”x6½”. If you want a bigger one, just continue to increase until the sides are your desired dimensions.

Repeat step 3 until you have 45 stitches across (or however many you want, it will depend on your needles and yarn size, as you can see in the pictures above, mine ended up having about a 9″ diagonal with 6.5″ sides).
K1, k2tog, yo, k2tog, knit to end
Repeat step 4 until you are down to 4 stitches
When you are done, just put the end of the yarn through your last loop, tighten it, and then hide both your ends.
How this pattern works is, each time you yarn over you are creating that “hole” along the edge of the dishcloth while also increasing each row by 1 stitch.
The reason you knit 2 together twice as you decrease is so you can continue to do the yarn over and continue the “hole” border while also decreasing 1 stitch for each row.
