The picture above was taking when it was wet/blocking.I had been meaning to work this up as a scarf using lighter weight yarn, but haven't had time to start it. So I decided to make a dishcloth instead.... hey, a dishcloth is 1/10 of a scarf, isn't it? lol. DH is too funny ... I show him the cloth and he asks, "plants?" Here's how you work the pattern....

Stitches used in this cloth include:
Fountain Lace, BW2 pg 272
Seed Stitch, BW1 pg 11

Knit 5 rows border.

Row 1 (WS) : B3, Purl, B3

Row 2 (RS) : B3, ssk, yo, k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, sk2tp, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2, yo, sk2tp, yo, k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, sk2tp, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2, yo, k2tog, B3

Row 3: B3, Purl, B3

Row 4: B3, ssk, K3, yo, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, yo, k3, sk2tp, K3, yo, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, yo, k3, k2tog, B3

Row 5: B3, Purl, B3

Row 6: B3, ssk, (k2, yo)x2, K2tog, k1, ssk, (yo, k2)x2, sk2tp, (k2, yo)x2, K2tog, k1, ssk, (yo, k2)x2, k2tog, B3

Row 7: B3, Purl, B3

Row 8: B3, ssk, k1, yo, k3, yo, k2tog, k1, ssk, yo, k3, yo, k1, sk2tp, k1, yo, k3, yo, k2tog, k1, ssk, yo, k3, yo, k1, ssk, B3

Repeat rows 1 through 8 four more times (for a total of 5 repeats).

Work one more row of: B3, Purl, B3

Knit 5 rows border.

Notes:

k2tog = knit the next two stitches together

sk2tp = slip 1 stitch, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over

ssk = slip 1 stitch, slip another stitch, knit these two slipped stitches together

yo = yarn over

(yo, K2)x2 = yo, k2, yo, k2

(k2, yo)x2 = k2, yo, k2, yo

B3 = 3 border stitches of your choice

Use whatever border you like. I used seed stitch in the one pictured above. For the top/bottom rows I did K1, P1 across to the end, ending with a K1. For the 3 stitch side borders, K1, P1, K1.
