In response to an earlier post about the dishcloths I had finished knitting, Cathy asked if I could share the pattern.
This pattern is from the ‘Down to Earth’ book by Rhonda Hetzel who writes a blog of the same name. If you have not seen it yet please pop in here.
This is the pattern which I have put into my own words.
Using 8 ply (or doubled 4 ply) cotton, cast on 38 stitches.
Rows 1 – 3 Knit
Row 4 Knit
Row 5 K3, purl to last 3 stitches, K3
Row 6 K3, [P2, K1], repeat to last 2 stitches, K2
Row 7 K3, [K2, P1], repeat to last 5 stitches, K5
Repeat rows 4 – 7, 14 times (total of 63 rows)
Rows 64 – 67 Knit
Cast off, fasten thread and weave in the ends.
Thank you for the pattern, I appreciate that you took the time to do that for me and others.
My pleasure. 🙂
Hi, I love your blog and enjoy reading it every day 🙂
I am a novice knitter and decided to knit a dishcloth using this pattern. It had me bamboozled because it wouldn’t work for me. I have traced back to the original pattern and there are two stitches missing near the end of Row 6 & 7. I didn’t work this out until mine was nearly finished so mine has an ‘individual’ pattern which still works and I am still proud of my effort. I just thought you would like to know.
