Playful Plaid Cloth

Inspired by a stitch found in “The Harmony Guides”

Materials:
Any worsted weight 100% cotton yarn in 2 colors

Special Instructions:

KW2 = Knit one stitch wrapping the yarn around the needle twice.

The MC is carried up the side of the work when working with the CC until you need it again. For instructions on how to do this, watch Lion Brand Yarn’s how to video.

All slipped stitches are purlwise.

Directions:

Cast on 50 stitches with MC or # of stitches divisible by 8sts + 6, with 4 additional stitches for the border. Ex. This cloth is 46 stitches for the pattern plus 4 border stitches = 50.

Row 1: knit (RS)

Row 2: knit

Attach CC to your work.

Row 3: With CC, k3, sl1, k2, sl1, * k4, sl1, k2, sl1, repeat from * to last 3 stitches, k3
