Gumdrop Gala Cloth


worsted weight cotton yarn
size 7 needles (or size you like for cloths)

The pattern is a multiple of 2 sts plus one.

Keep 3 sts at each edge in garter stitch. I recommend putting stitch markers as these stitches are not written into the pattern.

Cast on 39 sts.

Rows 1 - 3 : Knit across
Row 4: K1, *P2 tog, YO; repeat from * across row to last 2 sts, then P1, K1
Rows 5 - 7: Knit
Row 8: Purl

Repeat rows 1-8 till you are about 1 1/2 inches from being square.

Then work Rows 1-4.
Knit 6 rows.
Bind Off.

(I worked the pattern rows 6 times; then did rows 1-4 and the 6 garter rows. This made a 9-inch square cloth for me.) Pattern can be easily adjusted.

Happy Knitting!
