Thank you Bill for tuning me into this site!
I finished my first simple cotton washcloth after who knows how many scarves... Hoping to create a pattern to make a bunch of so I can replace my current tattered ones.
This one I learned from a lady at a yarn shop. Jotted it down on an envelope and tried to make it work... not perfect on my first attempt but I like it.
Basic wash/dish-cloth on the bias:
* Cast-on 4, knit 2-3 rows
* At 4th row, K3, YO, K1
* Continue doing YO at second to last stitch until you get to 39 stitches.
* K2, K2 together, YO, K2 together, K to end
* At 4 stitches remaining, cast off
And yes, the lace-ish border is different on half.
-- EDIT --
I forgot to mention: US 10.5 with "Peaches & Creme" 4-ply cotton was recommended though I did mine on US 6 needles
