Thank you Laurie N. For sending this in to share.

  In the one picture I folded the edge over to see both sides but the color of it may make it hard to see.  In the background you will see a 3 panel wooden picture holder that I decorated with Gallery Glass and Redi Led.  I left out the cardboard and put molding in to hold the glass panels.  Just another fun thing I do!  It makes ordinary glass really beautiful and so easy.

I used Bernat's Handicrafter Cotton color salt n pepper and Cro-sheen mercerized cotton grey, 1 strand each and number 13 needles. 

The finished size is 38 X 54 and the pattern goes like this:

Cast on 93 stitches loosely.

Rows: 1-6  K.

Row 7: K6 * (P3  K3), rep from * to the last 6 st and K6.

Row 8: K3, P3 to last 3 st  K3.

Row 9: same row 7.

Row 10: same row 9.

Row 11 + 12:  Knit.

Row 13: same as row 8.

Row 14: same as row 7.

Row 15: same as row 8.

Row 16: same as row 7.

Row 17 + 18 Knit.

Repeat rows 7-18 (11) times more.

then rows 7-16 once.
