Needle size: US9
Yarn (recommended): Bernat Handicrafter Yarn
WS - wrong side
RS - right side
Cast on 40 stitches. Knit 6 rows (finishing on the RS). Start the dishcloth pattern:
Row 1 (WS): Knit 4, purl 32, knit 4.
Row 2 (RS): Knit.
Repeat from row 1 24 more times (finishing on the RS).
Knit for 5 more rows, finishing on the WS. Bind off.
If you are learning how to knit, these are the basic skills that you need to learn for this pattern:
- How to cast on
- How to knit
- How to purl
- How to bind off
Estimated time for this project: about 2 hours. I did it on the bus for 30 minutes at a time and it took me a little more than 2 days to finish it.
- Try different kinds of worsted yarn.
- I found that US8 needles worked but after a few washes, the dishcloths were very tight.
- I'm going to try this pattern with white yarn and crochet yarn to create a cool, variegated effect.
