   Round Dishcloth


I knit round dishcloths on 2 needles.  I got the instructions from my mother so I'm not sure if there is a real pattern.

Cast on 15 sts.

Row 1:  k 1, yo, k 12 (2 sts left on left needle), turn
Row 2:  knit to end of Row
Row 3:  k 2, yo, k 10 (4 sts left on left needle), turn
Row 4:  knit to end of Row
Row 5:  k 3, yo, k 8 (6 sts left on left needle), turn
Row 6:  knit to end of Row
Row 7:  k 4, yo, k 6 (8 sts left on left needle), turn
Row 8:  knit to end of Row
Row 9:  k 5, yo, k 4 (10 sts left on left needle), turn
Row 10:  knit to end of Row
Row 11:  k 6, yo, k 2 (12 sts left on left needle), turn
Row 12:  knit to end of Row
Row 13:  bind off 6 sts, knit to end of Row (15 sts)
Row 14:  knit

Repeat these 14 rows until you have 11 "points".  On the last point do not do Row 14.

Row 14 of last point:  bind off.  Sew up seam.

I usually just whipstitch with my crochet hook  -- put the crochet hook into edge st on both sides and draw the yarn through completely. 

Repeat this until you get to the center.  At the center I weave the yarn through the sts and pull tight and fasten off.

I use size 8 needles and cotton yarn -- such as peaches and cream.

I hope this helps.  I had a friend who wouldn't share patterns but there is always a way to get around it.  (But that was before the internet!!)
