MOLINOS Dishcloth

MOLINOS Stitch Pattern

This pattern corresponds to Block 35 of my 52 Square Pickup KAL 🙂

“MOLINOS” is the Spanish word for “windmills”. “Why in Spanish?” you may ask. Well, here’s the reason. During my 2018 KAL (“12 Blocks for Xmas“) I originally named one of the blocks as “windmills”. And although I renamed it “pinwheels” after the suggestion of a follower, I still wanted to avoid duplicating names.

If you want to add this block to your Ravelry library, click here.

Remember that, in case you need more patterns to add to this project, I adapted all patterns from my “12 Blocks for Xmas” blanket to the same number of stitches and rows than the “52 Square Pickup” ones. You can find them HERE.

You just find this MKAL?

Don’t worry, you can start now! Look for more info in the following page: 52-SQUARE PICKUP: An all year round KAL”.

BLOCK 35: MOLINOS

MOLINOS stitch knitting pattern 52 SQUARE PICKUP knitted blanket MOLINOS knitting pattern OhLaLana dishcloth free pattern

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CO: cast on
  • RS: right side
  • WS: wrong side
  • st: stitch
  • k: knit
  • p: purl

INSTRUCTIONS

– CO 43 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.

I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.

– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.

Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.

– Continue working as follows:

4 garter sts, MOLINOS pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts​ until you have a total length of 8’’ (20.5 cm).

I knitted 3 times the MOLINOS pattern complete + row 1) again.

– Knit 4 rows.

– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
