Round Knitted Dish Cloth

I finished knitting a round dish cloth last evening.  It was the first time I'd made a round one and it ended up a bit rough.

So I tried again this evening.  This one turned out better but still not perfect.

Cast on 16 stitches with cotton yarn.

Knit one row

You will make eight wedges.  Here's the pattern for each wedge:

Row 1: knit to last stitch (leave last stitch unworked), turn.

Row 2 and all even rows: knit.

Row 3: knit to last 2 stitches, turn.

Row 5: knit to last 3 stitches, turn.

Row 7: knit to last 4 stitches, turn.

Row 9: knit to last 5 stitches, turn.

Row 11: knit to last 6 stitches, turn.

Row 13: knit to last 7 stitches, turn.

Row 15: knit to last 8 stitches, turn.

Row 17: knit.

Row 18: knit (except on row 18 of the final/eighth wedge, which you’ll bind off instead).

Repeat rows 1 – 18 seven more times.

Finish with mattress stitch from outside of circle to inside. Cinch up the inner circle. Weave in ends.
