June 5th 2016 Swatch

June 5th 2016 Swatch – Oblique Rib Swatch

Copyright © Janet Nogle 2016

1 skein of Cotton yarn
US #6 Knitting Needles

Cast on:  Multiple of 4 stitches + border stitches
This swatch was calculated as 16 + 4 = 20

Note:  B means Border Stitches

Rows 1-2:          Knit across row.

Row 1:               (RS) B K2, *K2, P2; repeat from * to end, B K2.
Row 2:              (WS) B K2, K1, *P2, K2; repeat from * to last 5 stitches: P2, K1, B K2.
Row 3:              B K2, *P2, K2; repeat from * to end, B K2.
Row 4:              B K2, P1, *K2, P2; repeat from * to last 5 stitches: K2, P1, B K2.
Repeat the above 4 rows till desired length.  I repeated the set 7 more times)

Rows 1-2:        Knit across row.

Bind off, weave in ends.

To convert to a dishcloth:

Just follow the swatch instructions only replace the “border” stitches with K4 instead of K2.  Everything else would remain the same, you can cast on as many stitches as you would like depending on how large a cloth you like.  You can use the “Multiple” number to do 4 x 6 = 24 or 4 x 8 = 32 or 4 x 10 = 40.  Just remember to add border stitches.  You can add 6 (3 for each side) or you can add 8 (4 for each side). 

This pattern would be a great kitchen set; a dishcloth, place mat and pot holder.  It would also be a good table runner.
