Highly textured with purl and knit sts on both sides, guranteed to give those dishes a good scrub. 🙂 Easy and fun to knit. This cloth looks very nice on both side and can be considered reversible. In order to use up the entire ball of yarn, I cast on multiple sts of the stitch count about 26 sts and knit coaster till I ran out of yarn.
