Fan and feather dish cloth

I started a fan and feather pattern dish cloth last night and finished it this morning.

Here's the pattern:

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

5pm update: Just made another one to match while watching Bridesmaids.

Oh wow, that's beautiful! I didn't realize you were a knitter :)

I really should get back to my knitting-It's such a relaxing craft to do!
