October is breast cancer awareness month. Working for ChiaoGoo I was inspired to create a special dish cloth pattern. Here it is free to copy and share. It goes with the special find a cure needles we make. Make one or more and give as a gift.
1 ball cotton dishcloth yarn.
“Find A Cure” needles. (by ChiaoGoo) size 6
Cast on 40 stitches
Knit 6 rows in garter stitch. (knit every row)
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit 5, Purl to the last 5 stitches, Knit 5.
Repeat these two rows 20 times more.
Knit 6 rows, bind off.
Knit ribbon as follows:
Cast on 1 stitch, knit in the front and back of this stitch (2 stitches). Turn, knit in the front and back of the first stitch, knit 1. (3 stitches), Turn. Knit 3. Turn, knit in the front and back of first stitch knit 3 (4 stitches). Knit 56 rows. Knit 2 together, knit 2. Turn, knit across. Knit 2 together, knit 1. Turn knit 1 and fasten off.
Work in ends by separating the yarn in half. Fold ribbon as shown in the picture. Sew down in corner of cloth using the yarn split in half to make sewing easier.
