My First Time Knitting Without an Already-Written Pattern

Hi Everyone!

I decided to do something a little different and knit my own pattern. I decided something like a washcloth would be good to experiment with. I made it a little bit bigger than a normal washcloth, but that’s okay! I’m just happy I didn’t go off of an already-written pattern.

If you new to knitting, this pattern would be great practice for you. More experienced knitters should be able to modify it pretty easily to get the size they want.

Here is what I used:

I used 4.0mm needles (size 6 in US and size 8 in UK/Canada)

The yarn I used is Peaches & Creme, color is “Sail Away Stripes” (worsted weight, 100% cotton).

Pattern:

Cast On 52

Rows 1 – 3: Knit

Row 4: K3, K2 P2 to last three stitches, K3 (knit the last 3 stitches)

Row 5: K3, K2 P2 to last three stitches, K3

Row 6: K3, P2 K2 to last three stitches, K3

Row 7: K3, P2 K2 to last three stitches, K3

Continue rows 4 – 7 until you have a total of 59 rows (including the first three that you initially knit), THEN…

Rows 60 – 62 – Knit

Bind Off!

If anyone tries this and you can’t understand how I wrote the pattern, please let me know.

I think I will use the same pattern to maybe make a smaller washcloth and even a dishtowel. Maybe even a little scrubbie!
