That's a warshrag of a different color
I was going to start a MD warshcloth, I really was, but hubby really wanted one of my nubby scrubby clothes. He so rarely asks me to knit him anything, how could I say no? I found this pattern on About.knitting.com awhile ago and have knit several with varying degrees of success. I knitted this one using Peaches & Cream (can't recall the color - bought a cone of it and the label is long gone). My previous versions included a garter stich border which was easy but I like the looks of the seed stitch border better. For anyone interested, the pattern is roughly as follows:
CO 44 sts.
Work 4 rows in seed stitch(Row 1: K1, P1, repeat; Row 2: P1, K1, repeat)
Row 1: K1, P1, K1, P1, (K1, P1, K1 all in the next stitch; P3 tog)* repeat till 4 stitches left; K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 2: P1, K1, P1, K1 (P 36 sts), P1, K1, P1, K1
Row 3: K1, P1, K1, P1 (P3 tog; K1, P1, Ki all in the next stitch)* repeat till 4 stitches left; K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 4: repeat row 2
Repeat this pattern till it's the size you want, then end with 4 rows of seed stitch.
The next shots of are some socks I just made my sister. Mitered squares for the cuffs. I used sock self striping sock yard by Cascade I think (not near my knitting bag). Cute, eh? I know, they look like clown socks but she'll love 'em!
Those socks are a lot of fun,
looking at their pix I just had to smile
and I bet your sister will too :=))
btw I didn't see anything about your trip
to Sitka on your website, did you write
about it on a different one???
I am very curious,
we sailed there in 2001
with Schnurrli ( a 19 lb Snowshoe) as our only crew.
PS I printed out your washcloth pattern
for future use, seed stitch is one of my favs
I've been terribly lazy about our website. I really should update it. Lots of great photos and some good stories. I will beat myself daily until I get it updated!
