Cloth of the month | March 2009

I decided to deviate from my usual circular short row cloths this month, and I've made a octagonal cloth.  It is similar to the average granny cloth to knit up.  Very easy!
March Cloth

Octagonal Cloth

I used a bamboo yarn that I picked up from Spotlight...   It knits up looking like army camo!  I used 4mm needles.

CO 21 sts.
*Knit one row.
then; increase at each end of the next row, by knitting into the front and back of first and last stitches.* 
Repeat until you have 45 stitches on your needles.
Knit 30 rows without increasing or decreasing.
*then; decrease at each end of row, by knitting two stitches together.
Next row; knit row.*
Repeat until you have 21 stitches on your needles.
Bind off and sew in the ends.

For easy printing, I know how hard it can be to print from a blog, go here to download this pattern as a PDF file. :) Free Dishcloth Patterns from

HI... I just made the Octagonal Cloth and by far its my favorite cloth ever, Mine doesnt look quite like yours, on mine i dont seem to have as much at the beginning and ending of the cloth, the increase and decrease section. Am i suppose to knit rows in between the increase and decrease rows? At any rate I Love the cloth, thanks so much for making it available for us.
