I came across the mini bean stitch and knew right away I needed to use it in a dishcloth pattern.
I’m loving the look of this dishcloth once it’s finished. I used Lily’s Sugar and Cream cotton yarn but any cotton yarn would work for this pattern.
The mini bean stitch is very easy to do. A how-to for the mini bean stitch is provided below. It is also called the Baby Bean Stitch or Elizabeth Stitch.
This stitch gives you the same texture on both sides, so you don’t have to worry about a wrong and right side of the project.

1 mini bean stitch covers 2 stitches, so I count it as 2
