Here's an easy cloth, as long as you don't mind a few purl-2-through-back-loops. I actually cheat a little with those when the stitches are two tight. I push my needle through the two stitches as if to knit-through-back-loops. This loosens them up just enough for me to push my needle the correct way for purl-2-through-back-loops. I saw this pattern in BW3 p156 and thought it would make a good dish cloth. The cloth above was knitted with S&C painted desert. I dug up this ball out of my stash and wasn't sure I liked the color, but it looks so much better knitted up. I think it's a good pairing of pattern & yarn color. The other cloth you see was knit in S&C Soft Teal. Both cloths are around 10" by 9" (25 cm x 23 cm). They will shrink to perfect size after their first washing.

Stitches used in this cloth include:
Eyelet and Bead Pattern, BW3 pg 156
Garter Stitch, BW1 pg 10

Note: Pattern was corrected on 7/13/07. Row 7 should read:
Row 7: K4, YO, * SSK, K3, K2Tog, YO, K1, YO *, SSK, K3, K2Tog, YO, K4. There was a typo with an extra "2" after a comma which most likely occurred when I hit my "w" key to type the comma (because I have a Dvorak keyboard mapping). Thank you Christine for pointing this out! :-)





This is another photo of the cloth. I thought the eyelet pattern showed up a little better against the black (my laptop).

Hiya!!

I love your designs!

How can I find "S&C painted desert" yarn???

Also, I loved your embossed turtle. Do you have any other animal designs like an elephant??

Nice work!

Marie,

Have you ever used Sonata for making dishcloths? I'm wondering if it makes a good dishcloth yarn.

I really, really like your eyelet and bead cloth pattern ... as a summer top pattern!

No, I haven't yet made an eyelet and bead top. I should practice by making a cloth first.

Happy knitting and thanks for the pattern,
Janey
