Baby Block Dishcloth Pattern

by Kayla K on December 30, 2009

Knitted dishcloths are a favorite project of mine because I can sample a new stitch pattern without committing to it on a large scale.  They are a great project for mindless movie-knitting or on-the-go public transportation knitting.  And, if you are purchasing yarn, crochet cotton is very cheap.

Dishcloths are great for gift-giving too.  Just add:

  1. A Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Cleaning Gift set for a housewarming gift
  2. A Burt’s Bee’s Baby Kit for a new-baby gift
  3. Handmade organic soap for a pamper-yourself gift- Wrap the soap with the dishcloth and tie with raffia.
  4. A couple more coordinating dishcloths for a hostess gift

I have only been knitting a few months. I like these dishcloths. But how do I work row 7.
Row 7: (K1, P1) twice, (P3, *K1, P1* twice, K 3) three times, (K1, P1) twice.

The pattern needs to be re-written in places to make it easier to follow i.e.
Row 5: (K1P1) twice, (P1K1) to last 4 sts, (K1P1) twice
Row 14: P1K1 across
Row 15: K1P1 across
Row 24: (P1K1) twice, (K1P1) to last 4 sts. (P1K1) twice
