Margie's Diamond Drops
Worsted Weight yarn
Size 7 needles
Cast on 38 stitches and knit 5 rows.
Begin stitch pattern below, keeping 3 stitches at each edge in garter (not reflected in pattern stitch below).
Row 1 (right side): Knit
Row 2: P1, *YO, P2, pass YO over purl sts, P2; rep from * to last 3 sts, YO, P2, pass YO over purl sts, P1.
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: P3, *YO, P2, pass YO over purl sts, P2; rep from * to last st, P1.
Repeat these 4 rows until almost square. Then knit 5 rows and bind off.
Note: This makes a smallish cloth (about 8.5 inches or a bit less). If you like a larger cloth, add on stitches in multiples of 4. You can also do the border with 4 stitches garter stitch rather than the 3, but remember to add two more stitches to the cast on if you do that.
