  • Step 1

    Gauge : 20 sts = 4"(but not overly crucial)
    Yarn : approx 50 yards worsted weight cotton
    Needle : US sz 6

    Creates a 7" - 7 1/2" square.

  • Step 2

    CO 38 sts.

    Knit 6 rows.

    Work the stitch pattern below until desired length.

    Don't knit a perfect square. Make the dishcloth a little longer than it is wide. It will shrink lengthwise considerably after use.

    k - knit
    yf - bring yarn to front
    sl1 pwise - slip 1 stitch purlwise
    sl2 pwise - slip 2 stitches purlwise

    Row 1 : k4, *k2, yf, sl2 pwise*, rpt from * to * until 6 sts remain, k6
    Row 2 (and all even numbered rows) : k4, p to last 4 sts, k4
    Row 3 : k4, yf, sl1 pwise, *k2, yf, sl1 pwise, *k2, yf, sl2 pwise*, rpt from * to *, until last 5 sts, k5
    Row 5: k4, yf, sl2 pwise, *k2, yf, sl2 pwise*, rpt from * to * until last 4 sts, k4

    The pattern is continued in this fashion, by moving one stitch to teft every right side row.

    K 6 rows. Bind off knit wise.
