help and suggestion

hi. I am a fairly new knitter. I am kniting a dishcloth using stockinette pattern but I would like to add words in the pattern - like “HIS”. I was thinking of using the seed stitch to do this. Do you think that would work or do you have another suggestion? I thought about adding a different color for the word but thought it might be to thick for a dish cloth. thanks in advance

If you were to add a different color you’d have to use intarsia or duplicate stitch. Both of these aren’t really pretty on the back so I’d suggest doing it with purls. You may have to chart it out with graph paper to make it evenly centered.
