Dishcloth design based on traditional guernsey flag pattern, (colour: Hot Pink).
With No. 7 needles, cast on 49 stitches
Commence pattern as follows:
Row 1: K5, (K9, P1) 3 times, knit to end.
These rows form one pattern.
Repeat the 10-row pattern 5 times more (6 times in all).
Work 6 rows in garter stitch, then cast off all 49 sts.
Finishing - sew in all ends, and press lightly with a damp cloth.
One (2 oz) ball of Lily Sugar n'Cream cotton.
One pair No. 7 needles.
20 sts x 26 rows to 4 inches measured over stocking stitch on No 7 (4½mm) needles.
The pattern as written should make a dishcloth about 10 inches square. My original in the picture is slightly smaller.
