It's a wonderful tutorial. If you don't know a thing about knitting, they have included YouTube links to show you how.
My daughter has been wanting to learn how to knit and I was a little rusty. I haven't knitted a thing for about ohhhhh maybe 15 years. One summer I knitted about 10 pairs of socks for my family for Christmas. It kinda took the joy for knitting out of me for a while...
Anywho... I had some Cream & Sugar cotton yarn in the house and thought I'd give it a spin. And now I can't seem to stop.
- Skein of your favorite “Sugar ‘n Cream” cotton yarn (buy online or at your local craft store)
- Size 6 or 7 needles (US)
Note: you make this dishcloth from one corner, diagonally to the opposite corner.
- Cast on 4 stitches.
- Row 1: Knit 4.
- Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row.
- Repeat Row 2 until you have 46 stitches on the needle.
- Row 3: Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row.
- Repeat Row 3 until you have 6 stitches on the needle.
- Bind off, cut the yarn (to about 6 inches), and weave back into the dishcloth using a yarn or darning needle.
Oh, and my daughter is learning to knit.
One last thing... If you knit them to 35-40 stitches (depending on your needle size and gauge) you should be able to get two cloths out of one skein of yarn. Just in case you were wondering.
