Hope's Delight

I made this washcloth for my really neat daughter, Hope! She is turning 12 (eeek!) on Tuesday, and since knitting cloths is my addiction, I thought I'd design one just for her. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOPE! Love you to bits!!!

Hope's Delight


Materials: 1 ball worsted weight cotton yarn, size 4 mm needles. I used Lion Brand Yarn's Lion Cotton, 108 Morning Glory Blue. I think this would look FANTASTIC in variegated yarn, but I've yet to try it...

Instructions:
Cast on 18 stitches.
This cloth is made up of 6 wedges, all exactly the same. When you finish knitting a wedge, you just carry on knitting the next one. Then the edge is sewn together, the threads are sewn in and the cloth is complete. :)

Every wedge:
Row 1 : K to last 6 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.
Row 2: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, YO, K to last st, turn.
Row 3: K to last 6 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.
Row 4: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, YO, K to last 2 sts, turn.
Row 5: K to last 6 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.
Row 6: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, YO, K to last 3 sts, turn.
Row 7: K to last 6 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.
Row 8: Bind off 3 sts, then K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, YO, K to last 4 sts, turn.
Row 9: K to last 6 sts, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1.
Row 10: P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, YO, K to last 5 sts, turn.
Row 11: K to last 6 sts, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1.
Row 12: P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, YO, K to last 6 sts, turn.
Row 13: K to last 6 sts, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1.
Row 14: Bind off 3 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, YO, K to last 7 sts, turn.
Row 15: K to last 6 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.
Row 16: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, YO, K to last 8 sts, turn.
Row 17: K to last 6 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.
Row 18: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, YO, K to last 9 sts, turn.
Row 19: K to last 6 sts, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.
Row 20: Bind off 3 sts, then K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, YO, K to last 10 sts, turn.
Row 21: K to last 6 sts, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1.
Row 22: P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, YO, K to last 11 sts, turn.
Row 23: K to last 6 sts, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1.
Row 24: P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, YO, K to last 12 sts, turn.
Row 25: K to last 6 sts, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1.

Your round cloths are all great. I have a few ideas for some round cloths I'd love to design but I just can't get the pattern rule down in my head. Does that make sense? If you have any helpful hints I'd really be grateful. You can email me at gimpykatk at aol, or I am also gimpykatk on Ravelry

I really like this new cloth and Happy Birthday wishes to Hope

Thanks
