Here's another cloth made from Sonata. I love working with this yarn. Like the Cabbage Rose Cloth, this is another big cloth, about 10 in x 15 in (25 cm x 38 cm). Sonata is a DK weight yarn, so this cloth would come out even larger when using a worsted weight yarn like S&C or P&C. I think this would be nice knit up in something even finer than DK weight. This pattern is from BW3 p184. Did I mention that I love this yarn? OK, I definitely need to throw in some more Sonata yarn the next time I place my Elann order. The hard part is choosing colors because this yarn comes in so many beautiful colors, both solid & variegated. I haven't washed these two Sonata cloths yet so don't know how much they shrink compared to S&C/P&C shrinkage.

Stitches used in this cloth include:
Garter Stitch, BW1 pg 10
Persian Jar, BW3 pg 184
Stockinette Stitch, BW1 pg 10

10/12/07 Update: Trying something new here to improve pattern distribution. Persian Jar Cloth pattern can also be downloaded by clicking on this link: http://www.box.net/shared/r0uoain2j4 . No registration required for this link.

Note: I knit this cloth directly from my notes, then transcribed them into this PDF file. I have not actually test knitted from this PDF file. I would appreciate it if you would let me know of any errors you encounter with the pattern.
