Dish Cloth Afghan

I found this pattern on the 'Net and it's really easy.
  1. Cast on 4 stitches.
  2. Knit 2, YO, Knit to end.
  3. Turn work.
  4. Knit 2, YO, Knit to end.
  5. Turn work.
  6. Keep doing this over and over and over and over and over.

You are making a giant triangle which will eventually turn into a square. When you think it is half the size you want, start decreasing:

  1. Knit 1, K2tog, YO, K1, K2tog, knit to end.
  2. Turn work.
  3. Knit 1, K2tog, YO, K1, K2tog, knit to end.
  4. Turn work.
  5. Keep doing this over and over and over and over and over.
  6. Cast off the final 4 stitches

I'd forgotten about that dishcloth pattern and never thought about making it afgan sized. Dang, that's great idea.

Everyone time I read your blog I think I need to start a knitting project again.

Love the colour
