Turtle Knit Dishcloth Pattern
This knit dishcloth picture is one of my favorites! An adorable turtle walks across the cloth, caught in mid-stride. He faces the left and his front leg is raised so slightly as if he were about to take another step.
The design is not symmetrical so adjustments may need to be made by 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.
