Level of Difficulty:   Easy

Materials: 1 skein of cotton yarn.
#6 US Knitting Needles

Notes:  B = border stitch of 2 knit stitches on each side.
WYIB = With yarn in back, WYIF = With yarn in front.
Sl 1 = On RS rows, slip stitch knit wise on WS rows, slip stitch purl wise.

Cast on:      Multiple of 4 + 3 (16 + 3 = 19)
Border:
Row 1:        Knit across.
Row 2:        Knit across.
  
Pattern:
Row 1:        (RS) B2, K3, *Sl 1 (WYIB), K3; repeat from *, end B2
Row 2:        (WS) B2, K3, *Sl 1 (WYIF), K3; repeat from *, end B2.
Row 3:        B2, K1, *Sl 1 (WYIB), K3; repeat from *, end last 4 sts: Sl 1, (WYIB), K1, B2.
Row 4:        B2, K1, *Sl 1 (WYIF), K3; repeat from *, end last 4 sts: Sl 1 (WYIF), K1, B2.
Border:

Row 2:        Knit across

Work to desired length, I repeated the 4 row set 7 more times. Bind off and weave in ends.


You can make into a cloth by adding more stitches to cast on. You may want to increase the border stitches to 4 on each end and increasing the pattern stitches to 28 + 3 + 8 border pattern = 39.
