This is the thirty-sixth pattern in the Knitted Kitchen Blog Hop: Learn A New Stitch Dishcloth Series 2017. In this post, you can find all the information you’ll need to follow along, as well as regularly updated links to each of the 48 knitting patterns.

This week’s dishcloth features the puff lace, a gentle ripple stitch. I had so much fun with last month’s Easy Ripple Washcloth that I decided to make another ripple stitch washcloth this month.
