Basketweave – Dishcloth 3 of 12

This weeks dishcloth was a simple basketweave pattern.

Basket Weave

This was a very simple pattern Here it is if anyone were to want to create it (K=knit, P=purl).

First, I cast on 32 stitches.

Row 1-4: knit all for a garter stitch edging

Rows 5-8: K8, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K4
Rows 9-12: K4, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K8

Rows 13-16: K8, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K4
Rows 17-20: K4, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K8

Rows 21-24: K8, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K4
Rows 25-28: K4, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K8

Rows 29-32: K8, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K4
Rows 33-36: K4, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K8

Rows 37-40: K8, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K4

Rows 41-44: knit all for a garter stitch edging

That’s it. This pattern became pretty simple and I was able to use the row I had just knitted to determine my next stitch.  Happy knitting

    What kind of yarn and what size knitting needles?

      I used Peaches and Crème 100% cotton yarn. This yarn has been discontinued, but several other brands do have a 100% cotton yarn. Dishcloths made from cotton yarn stand up better. For this project I used a #6 (4mm) knitting needle.
