This Bonbons et Calissons Dishcloth pattern is pretty easy. The only trick is minding your Yarn Overs.
K2Tog = Knit 2 stitches together
P1B = Purl 1 into back loop of stitch
SSK = Slip 1 stitch, Slip next stitch, Knit these two slipped stitches together
S2KP = Slip2 stitches, Knit 1, Pass 2 slipped stitches over the stitch just knitted
YO = Yarn over
MB = K1, YO, K1, YO, K1 into the same stitch. Turn work, P5. Turn work, K5. Turn work, P5. Turn work, SSK, K1, K2Tog. Turn work, P3Tog. Turn work. With yarn in back, slip the bobble stitch from left needle to right needle.
BTW, the picture above has a 4 row garter border instead of a 6 row garter border.
