Portuguese Knitting Dishcloths

all for patt

In this video, we get started on a quick project to practice the Portuguese knitting style. This pattern is written especially for Portuguese Knitting, because the garter stitch is worked by purling every row. You can get the other version of this pattern (knit every row) here. This video is sponsored by Knitter’s Pride.

This pattern is a FREE RAVELRY DOWNLOAD.
