Striped Dishcloth – Knitting Pattern

I love working with colours. This was designed for a friend of mine who is mad on the colour red. This makes a terrific wash or dish cloth, and a wonderful small gift, especially as a hostess gift.

It is an easy knit, and great practise working with 2 colours.

You will need:
2 colours of cotton yarn
Size 4mm knitting needles

Cast on 42 stitches.

Knit 6 rows, slipping the first stitch of every row.

Get ready with the second colour.
1- slip 1, knit 4, change to colour 2, knit to the last 5 stitches, change to colour 1, knit 5
2- slip 1, knit 4, change to colour 2, purl to the last 5 stitches, change to colour 1, knit 5
3- slip 1, knit 4, change to colour 2, knit to the last 5 stitches, change to colour 1, knit 5
4- slip 1, knit 4, change to colour 2, purl to the last 5 stitches, change to colour 1, knit 5
5- slip 1, knit to end
6- slip 1, knit 4, purl to the last 5 stitches, knit 5
7- slip 1, knit to end
8- slip 1, knit 4, purl to the last 5 stitches, knit 5

Repeat these 8 rows 5 times.
Knit rows 1 through 4.

Using colour one knit 6 rows, slipping the first stitch. Cast off. Crochet tail into a chain and stitch into a loop. Darn in the tails.
