Cotton Striped Dishcloths

What a great way to brighten up your kitchen and sink area. Knit up a couple of these and washing dishes may not be so bad!

SIZE: One Size
9 1/2 x 10 in. (24 x 25.5 cm)

• 760-145 Lion Brand Lion Cotton Yarn: Orchid 1 Ball (A)
• 760-152 Lion Brand Lion Cotton Yarn: Espresso 1 Ball (B)
• 760-159 Lion Brand Lion Cotton Yarn: Mustard 1 Ball (C)
• 760-136 Lion Brand Lion Cotton Yarn: Clove 1 Ball (D)
• 760-133 Lion Brand Lion Cotton Yarn: Paprika 1 Ball (E)
• Knitting Needles- Size 8 [5 mm]
• Large-Eye Blunt Needle

16 stitches and 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row). BE SURE TO
CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size
specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it
takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size
hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Materials are sufficient to make several Dish Cloths.

Knit 6 rows with A, 2 rows with B, 10 rows with C, 2 rows with D, 4 rows with E. Repeat these 24 rows for Color Sequence.

With A, cast on 38 stitches. Work in Color Sequence, knitting every row, until piece measures 10 in. (25.5 cm) from beginning. Bind off.

Weave in ends.
