Piece of Pie Cloth

Materials: 1 ball worsted weight cotton yarn, size 3 1/4 mm needles. I used an unknown ball of cotton that I got in a bag of yarn from the local op shop.

Cast on 15 stitches.
This cloth is made up of 7 wedges, all exactly the same. Then the edge is sewn together, the threads are sewn in and the cloth is complete. :)

Every wedge:
Row 1 and all odd rows: K across the row.
Row 2: K2, YO, K to last st, turn.
Row 4: K2, YO, K to last 2 sts, turn.
Row 6: K2, YO, K to last 3 sts, turn.
Row 8: Bind off 3 sts, YO, K to last 4 sts, turn.
Row 10: K2, YO, K to last 5 sts, turn.
Row 12: K2, YO, K to last 6 sts, turn.
Row 14: Bind off 3 sts, YO, K to last 7 sts, turn.
Row 16: K2, YO, K to last 8 sts, turn.
Row 18: K2, YO, K to last 9 sts, turn.
Row 20: Bind off 3 sts, YO, K to last 10 sts, turn.
Row 22: K2, YO, K to last 11 sts, turn.
Row 24: K2, YO, K to last 12 sts, turn.
Row 26: Bind off 3 sts, K across row.

If you can help out with a name for this cloth, let me know by commenting below!

I've decided I like the Piece of Pie title for this cloth. Thanks SianaBanana and thanks also to everyone else who left a comment with a title idea! :D I imagine if you used a nice creamy yellow cotton this would really look like pie! Yummmm!

I love it and think it reminds me of the look of a sunflower? What do you think? Marion

Reminds me of a snow flake - snow cloth perhaps? Flake cloth?

Since it was made in peices, it reminded me of a Pie - not that a pie is made in peices - well it made sence in my head.

Bunny Tail - It reminds me of the little cottontail on the rear end of a bunny rabbit.
