Free Pattern for Knitted Washcloths

Another wedding present is almost done. I will buy some more crystal plates from Hadeland Glassverk to go with, the same kind as in the picture, they are called "Furu" (English:Pine)

The washcloths are my own design, but greatly inspired by the faboulous designer KrisKnits. I have also chosen to copy her way of explaining the pattern, thank you Kris!

Use e.g. cotton yarn that can handle a good wash in the machine. I use about 75 g of yarn for one washcloth.
Use 1/2 size smaller knitted than recommended on the yarn. This makes the pattern show better.

Sl 1 means that you should not knit the first stich, only slip it on the other pin. See picture below.
Cast on 90 stiches.

Frame row 1: Sl 1, (k1,p1) to last stitch, k1.
Frame row 2: Sl 1, (p1,k1) to last stich, k1.
Repeat these 2 Frame rows 3 more times.

Section A:

Row 1: Sl 1, (k1,p1)x2, (k5,p5)x8, (k1,p1)x2, k1.

Row 2: Sl 1, (p1,k1)x2, (k5,p5)x8, (k1,p1)x2, k1.
Repeat section A 2 more times.

Section B:
Row 3: Sl 1,(k1,p1)x2, (p5,k5)x8, (p1,k1)x2, k1.

Rows 4:Sl 1,(p1,k1)x2, (p5,k5)x8, (p1,k1)x2, k1.
Repeat section B 2 more times.

Reapeat Section A and B 9 more times.

Repeat Frame once. Cast off on last row.
Use a crochet hook to make the hoops. (I make 2 in each cloth)
Weave in ends.

Good luck from Mona at

Flott gave! Nydelige farger på vaskeklutene du har laget. Er helt fan av hjemmestrikkede vaskekluter - har alle regnbuens farger på hytta! :-) Og et veldig fint sommer-håndarbeid er det også..
