These are my go-to end of year gift for teachers. A trio of hand knit (or crocheted) dishcloths combined with fancy soap or coordinating tea towels is a not-flashy, but always useful, gift. I also like to think that getting something handmade feels special. I found this adorable, vaguely patriotic, cotton and whipped these up for Charlie's teacher. I think a set for Liz's story time teacher may be up next.
From top to bottom they are done in seed stitch, stockinette with a garter stitch edging and checker-board patterns.
