Bubble Stitch Knit Dishcloth Pattern

Bubble Stitch Dishcloth

I started knitting this stitch pattern and found it a fun stitch to knit so I decided to knit a dishcloth. I thought I’d share the pattern with you. The bubble stitch is also called the tuck stitch. It’s not complicated but did take a few tries before I got it. There’s several videos of the stitch but they didn’t work for me. They use the right hand needle but I found it easier to use the left hand needle.

Here’s one video that I discovered. And here’s a photo of how I achieved the same stitch.

Drop stitch and unravel 4 rows, insert needle into live stitch from 4 rows below and catching strands from unraveled stitches, Knit through all 5 strands as one stitch

So here’s the pattern. I’d love to see your finished clothes. The color combinations are endless.
