This design is done with multiple of 6 stitches + 3. If you want to do a cloth or other item, take that into consideration.  I think this is a little lacy for a cloth or towel but you can adapt it for a cloth.

Cast on:  Multiple of 2 + 2 (16+2+4=22)  Cast on 22 stitches
This would make a great Place Mat or cloth.

Border:
Row 1:           Knit across.
Row 2:           Knit across.

Row 1:           Knit across.
Row 2:           K2, *K1, Sl 1; repeat from * to last 4 stitches, K4.

If you are interested in making a dishcloth I would recommend using 30 + 2 + 6 Border = 38 stitches.  Then follow the instructions above working border stitches for each side instead of 2.
