I have designed my very own dish cloth. (At least, it's not a pattern I have seen anywhere else...but I don't want to say something is necessarily *my* pattern if someone else came up with it first...?) It all happened quite by accident. It has turned into a beautiful pattern though...and it's a very easy one to do!
If you are new to knitting or have a desire to knit but don't know where to start...be assured, you *can* do it! I taught myself a few years back, by watching videos HERE. Once I was comfortable with one stitch, I moved on to a harder one. Once you get the swing of it, it's like riding a bicycle...you can do it...put it aside for a bit and come back as if you never put it down! :)
If you would like to try out this pattern, I am happy to share it with you! :)
On any size needles you are comfortable with (I am using a 10 but I usually like a 7 or 8 for dish cloths as they make a tighter stitch!)...using cotton yarn...CO 40 sts.
Rows 1-3: garter stitch (Knit every row)
Rows 4: K3, (P3,K3,P3 until last 4 sts.) K4
Continue the same pattern for Row 4 on every single row! You can change colors if you want, as well. Once you have reached your desired length, Knit the last 3 rows in garter stitch and then Bind Off! Sew in your ends and there you have it! :)
If you give this a try, I would love to hear how you like it! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me: thecountryblossom at hotmail dot com
**Jaxson's check-up at Children's Hospital went well today! We will be scheduling the surgery to get the stitches out of his eye soon! If you are new to my blog and wonder what I am writing about, you can read about it HERE! Thanks, so much, for the continued prayers and love...it's all appreciated, truly!
Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied,
