Crab Knit Dishcloth Pattern
Watch out for the pincers! This little crab reminds you of being on the beach. You can easily see the design on this dishcloth by the shape of his body, his legs, and two front claws.
The design is symmetrical, so no adjustments are needed for lefty knitters.
The picture is created in garter stitch on a stockinette background. The border is seed stitch, but the pattern is written so that you may substitute a preferred border if you wish.
