I just thought I would send a picture of the new dishcloth that you all helped me with a few days ago. It really turned out well and I thank you all.

Very nice. I'm looking

Very nice. I'm looking forward to knitting up the set I got the yarn, needles and directions for at Rocky Mountain Retreat. However, with 3 projects that are at the halfway mark, it will be a while.

Nice! Sometimes simplicity

Nice! Sometimes simplicity is elegant - and this is one of those cases.

It is Garter Stitch. Here is the pattern. Very simple. Just realize in either case that my pattern was written by me and you will actually have more rows in the work then I have displayed.

Dish Towel Pattern

CO 4
R1: K 4
R2: K2, YO, K2
R3: K2, YO, K until the end of row.
R4: Repeat row 3 until you have 100 sts (or the width that you wish. Look at one side of the triangle hanging from the needles. This is your width).
R5: K1, K2 together, YO, K2 together , K to the end of row.
R6: K2, YO, K until the end of row.
R7-R40: Repeat rows 5 and 6. All of your increases are on one side and your decreases will be on the other side).
R41: It does not matter if you end with Row 5 or Row 6, but if you look at what is hanging off your needles you will be able to see the width of the towel and the length of the towel. Now you just want to do every row as a decrease now: K1, K2 together, YO, K2 together , K to the end of row.
R42: Repeat Row 41 until you have 4 stitches left.
R43: Knit all stitches
