Freebie Friday: Simple Knitting

How many dishcloths do you go through in a week? A month? One too many? Today’s FREE PROJECT is a simple dish cloth from Simple Knitting by Erika Knight. One can never have one too many dish cloths!

A unique workshop-based project book,  Simple Knitting, by Erika Knight is a book that teaches you how to knit by creating a beautiful collection of items. With each of the twenty projects you learn a new skill, and build upon the techniques learned with the proceeding project until you have mastered a wide repertoire of skills and amassed an enviable collection of gorgeous knitwear.
