Fin and feather dish cloth

I finished a fin and feather pattern dish cloth tonight while watching Mr. Brooks:

Cotton yarn and size 4.5mm knitting needles

Cast on 42 stitches (or a multiple of 18 plus 6)

Knit 3 rows of garter stitch for the border

Row 4: Knit

Row 5: K 3, P to last 3 stitches K3

Row 6: K3, *(K2 tog) 3 times, (yo, K1) 6 times, (K2 tog) 3 times, rep from * to last 3 sts K3

Row 7: Knit

Repeat Rows 4 - 7, keeping first and last 3 stitches in garter stitch, until piece measures desired length

Knit 3 more rows of garter stitch to make the bottom border

Cast off and darn in ends

Always wanted to take up knitting. Still haven't found the time or the skill. Love the dish cloth.

Wow! this is really pretty and fine work! Congraulations! I'd like to save this for a future project, if you don't mind. ^_^*
