This knit dishcloth is perfect for a teacher. This design has a picture of an old-fashioned schoolhouse.
See below for a correction to an older version of the pattern.
The design is symmetrical, so adjustments do not 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.
