I've been busy since my last post: trying to re-arrange, re-organize, etc. - all that little stuff you feel you have to do when fall comes.
I've started projects for Christmas gifts; never underestimate the value of a good hand-knit dishcloth when wracking your brain for gift ideas. Here's the tried and true pattern:
Uses any kind of worsted-weight cotton yarn
Size 7/8 needles
Ist row: cast on 3 sts.
2nd row: k2, yo, k1
3rd row and subsequent inc rows: k2, yo, knit to end of row
Follow this pattern until dishcloth is the width you want. I usually knit until there are 38 sts on my needle, then I start the dec rows:
Ist dec row: k1, k2tog, yo, k2tog, knit to end of row.
Continue until you have 4 sts. left, then bind off. Sew in loose ends, then knit about five more for a great gift.
Thanks again for sticking with me over here at 52 Pairs!
