Comments: I'm in need of a few new dish scrubbies, so I went in search of some very textured patterns for swatches.  This one caught my eye because of the deep ribbed ridges on the wrong side of the fabric - just perfect for cleaning sticky saut√© pans!  I purposely chose to knit it on a smaller needle so that the fabric would be more dense - I think it kind of works though.  It would be interesting to do this in a wool, to make an extra-warm coat or vest or something.
