I've been really into washcloths lately.  I like that they're small so even if your pattern is involved enough to keep your mind fairly occupied, they still won't take very long.  Also, they're kind of stress free because if you end up having to frog, you haven't lost much work.  I made these for my 4 yr old son's teacher's assistant.  I finished the ones for the actual teacher before preschool was over, but I hadn't finished these quite yet, so I got the assistant's address so I could mail them.  Anyway, I asked her favorite color and she specified an olive/army green, so that's why they're all the same color. 


This one's a modified version of the Staggered Fern pattern.


This one's the Traveling Vine pattern.


This one's a pattern I made up using some common cable stitches.  I wanted it to look like the washcloth version of a sweater.  I don't know what those couple of discolored spots on/by the cable farthest to the right are.  They're made more noticeable by the flash because they're really not that visible in person.  Here's the pattern, if anyone's interested.

CO 42

c6f: place first 3 sts on cable needle and hold in front of work, knit next 3 sts, knit the 3 sts from cable needle.

c6b: place the first 3 sts on cable needles and hold behind work, knit next 3 sts, knit the 3 sts from cable needle.

wishbone cable: c6b, c6f *Please note that when you make this cable, a large hole will form at the base of it. This hole will gradually disappear as you continue to work the non-cable rounds of the pattern.*

4 rows of border.

Row 1: border 3, p3, k6, p3, k12, p3, k6, p3, border 3
Row 2: border 3, k3, p6, k3, p12, k3, p6, k3, border 3
Row 3: border 3, p3, c6f, p3, wishbone cable, p3, c6b, p3, border 3
Row 4: as round 2
Row 5: as round 1
Row 6: as round 2
Row 7: as round 1
Row 8: as round 2

Repeat rounds 1-8 four times more.

4 rows of border


All of them are done in Peaches & Crme in Light Sage on US size 7 needles.  Thanks for looking!
