THE ENTIRE PATTERN (written and charted) IS BELOW.
- CO: cast on
- RS: right side
- WS: wrong side
- st: stitch
- k: knit
- p: purl
– 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, SHAMROCK pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts (55 rows).
– Knit 4 rows.
– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
k all sts, all rows.

I love your patterns! I prefer to use the charts for picture cloths and it would help me immensely if you could make darker lines on the grid after every 10 sts. It really helps with the counting. Thanks!
Hi, thanks for your comment, that’s a great idea! I will definitely implement it. How do you think it will be better to start counting? Left to right, or right to left?
Since your blocks are the same size, I’d make up a basic grid with the border stitches already in it. I don’t know which charting software you use, but dropping in your picture shouldn’t be hard once you have the basic template. And since we start reading our knitting at the bottom right, I’d count in tens from the right-hand border. I have to admit to knitting blanket/dishcloth blocks by other designers, so I know you can find examples to look at. A darker line after every 10 rounds/rows would be great, too.
I use the basic KnitCompanion software and it has a highlight bar that keeps good track of the rows/rounds, but for stuff like cables or lace the grid is the thing I go by. I’m finding that as I get older I need all the help I can get! I don’t print patterns here (and haven’t for years) to stay as green as possible and save the trees.
Love the Squirrel and Cat. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you! I’m happy you like them 🙂
On row 6 it say p15 k3 and p17. I have done that but am left with 8 sts on my left needle. What did i do wrong?????
