Fill your kitchen sink with Easter eggs! The picture on this knit dishcloth is an Easter egg decorated with a zig-zag rick rack pattern across the middle. The design is an “outline” style design, meaning it looks drawn on the cloth. The rick rack is a solid band across the middle of the egg. This pattern pairs perfectly with my free pattern: Easter Egg with Stripes.
The design is symmetrical, so no adjustments need to be made for lefty knitters.
The picture is created in garter stitch on a stockinette background. The border is seed stitch, but the pattern is written so that you may substitute a preferred border if you wish.
