This pattern reminds me of days spent at the boat docks in Michigan when I was young; the way in which rope was wrapped around the large log-like rail. We'd walk up and down the docks noticing it. I loved those days. You will have tons of fun knitting this dishcloth. It's perfect for those wanting a simple, but different, every row pattern. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY This pattern uses knit and purl stitches only. The only other thing you'll need to know is how to cast on, bind off, and weave in ends. This is a 14 row repeat pattern. GAUGE 20 sts - 24 rows = 4" (5 sts/inch) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approx. 8 x 8

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1 skein cotton worsted weight yarn
  • set of size 6 straight needles
  • yarn needle for weaving in ends
