Another freebie...

This pattern is listed in various places, in about a million different ways, but, because I'm a fan of sharing freebies... here goes...

Simple Dishcloth with Eyelet Border

Size 7 or 8 needles
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: K2, YO, knit rest of row.
Row 3 on: Repeat Row 2 until desired size.  I've found that 40 sts is a good in-between size
Decrease Rows:
Row 1: K2, YO, K2tog, K2tog, K rest of row.
Row 2: Repeat Row 1
Row 3: Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until there are 4 sts remaining.  (This can be varied... if it starts to look too "pointy" on the end, BO sooner)
BO, weave in ends.

I've found that the Sugar n' Cream, while it works great for these, has a tendancy to bleed.  A lot.  So if you give them as gifts in a color other than natural or white, warn the recipient to soak it in cold salt water to prevent bleeding.  :)
