Dish Cloth Pattern

I was asked this week for my dish cloth knitting pattern. It is super simple and that's what I like about knitting this pattern. I can sit and watch a good TV show and not really pay attention to my knitting.

First Cast on 4 stitches in whatever way you like to cast on (CO 4)

Knit one row. (K)
Next Row Knit two stitches, yarn over (K2, yo)

Then Knit to the end of the row. (K to end)

Now you have added one stitch.

Continue the pattern of Knit 2, Yarn Over, Knit to the end (K2, yo, K to end)

 Once you reach your desired size. I prefer to increase until I have 45 stitches on my needles. Now it is time to decrease.
Knit one then knit 2 stitches together (K1, K2tog)

Next you want to Yarn over (yo)

Now you want to knit 2 together again then knit to the end. (K2tog, K to the end) Continue this until you are down to 4 stitches and knit this last row.

Now its time to Cast off (CO). To cast off you want to knit 2 (K2)

Then pass first knit stitch over the second stitch and remove that stitch from the needles.

Continue until you are down to one stitch left and then cut yarn and pull yarn through loop to close loop. Done. Just weave in the ends of your yarns and you are done :)

CO 4 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2-45: K2, yo, K to end
Row 46-86: K 1, K2tog, yo, K2tog, K to end of row
Row 87: K4
Row 88: Cast off

Let me know if you have decided to join my challenge. Have fun and enjoy :)
