I knitted a dish cloth this evening using a sand stitch pattern ... I found the pattern here. It's an easy quick one.
I used cotton yarn and 4.5mm needles.
Cast on multiples of 2, plus 1 ... I cast on 41 stitches.
Row 1 (Right Side): purl all
Row 2 (Wrong Side): * K1, P1 *, K1
Follow pattern until desired length.
Cast off in purl. Darn in the ends.
