Travelling Vine Scarf I made a while back. The pattern really shows best after blocking. Not sure you can see the vine pattern in this picture, with the green baby blanket in the background ... look at the holes and you'll see the vine pattern travelling upwards. I'm surprised I even got such a focused picture. I put the cloth in my little girl's crib thinking it would enable me to take a picture of it without her grabbing it (which she does when I place my knitting on the coffee table), but she was fussing & leaning on me while I was trying to take photos so the camera was not very steady at all.
Stitches used in this cloth include:
Garter Stitch, BW1 pg 10
Traveling Vine, BW1 pg 219

Knit 4 rows border.
Bind off. Weave in ends. Block cloth for best results.
B3 = 3 stitch side border of your choice (I used K3 for my border in the cloth above)

K2TOG = knit 2 stitches together
P2TOG = Purl 2 stitches together
P2TOG-B = Purl 2 stitches together through the back loop
Similar to purling 1 stitch through back loop. Video to show you how to purl 1 stitch together is on Knitting Help, look under "p tbl" here:
SSK = slip one stitch, slip another stitch, knit these two slipped stitches together
YO = Yarn Over
Instructions in parentheses followed by x2 or x3 means you do what is in the paretheses the number of times indicated after "x". For example, (yo, K1-b, yo, ssk, K5)x3 means you do the following: yo, K1-b, yo, ssk, K5, yo, K1-b, yo, ssk, K5, yo, K1-b, yo, ssk, K5.
