King Charles is a fun textured dishcloth worked with knits and purls. It is very easy and is a good choice for beginner knitters. The high relief textures makes for a very useful dishcloth.

Color used in the sample is no longer available; we have made a similar color suggestion in the yarn calculator below.

I think it’s silly to call this pattern “very easy.” Yes, it’s made entirely of knits and purls, but the pattern is quite impossible to memorize, and I’m convinced it does not reflect the author’s original intention. The diamonds are not symmetrical. I even looked up King Charles knitting pattern to see if it’s supposed to be askew, and while this is an interesting take on the classic pattern, it would be much easier to work with if it maintained the symmetry of the original diamond shape. Also, in the picture of the finished dishcloth, you can see an obvious inconsistency: the left edge has a nice seed stitch border that’s 5 stitches wide, while the right edge varies between a border width of 5 and 6 stitches. All in all, it’s poorly written and I would recommend picking a different free pattern. ;)
