Marvelous Mesh Cloth


by Mary Dixon

I used S&C cotton and #7 needles.

Cast on 38 stitches.

Garter stitch for 4 rows.

Continue as below, keeping 3 stitches each edge in garter stitch for border.

Row 1 (RS): Purl
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: K2, *sl 1 wyib, k1; repeat from *.
Row 4: *K1, sl 1 wyif; repeat from *, end k2.
Row 5: K1, *yo, k2 tog; repeat from *, end k1.
Row 6: Purl

I did 9 repeats of Rows 1-6.

Garter stitch for 6 rows.
Bind off.

This made a cloth approx. 8 1/2 inches square. You can vary the size by adding stitches or subtracting stitches as long as you have an even number of stitches.
