A friend purchased my STOCKINETTE ZIG ZAG Dishcloth pattern with the intention of adding it to the 52 Square Pickup collection. I offered to adapt the pattern for her, and now you can see it below too 🙂
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.
– 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, STOCKINETTE ZIG ZAG Stitch pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts until you have a total length of 8’’ (20.5 cm).
Knit 6 times the STOCKINETTE ZIG ZAG Stitch pattern complete + rows 1) to 7) again.
– Knit 4 rows.
– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
k all sts, all rows.
(Over a multiple of 10 sts. I added 5 more sts to reach our needed 35.)
Repeat instructions between brackets as many times as needed. For this block, make them a total of 3 times, horizontally.
Row 1) (RS) [p5, k5], p5
Row 2) k4, p1, [p4, k5, p1]
Row 3) [k2, p5, k3], k2, p3
Row 4) k2, p3, [p2, k5, p3]
Row 5) [k4, p5, k1], k4, p1
Row 6) k2, p3, [p2, k5, p3]
Row 7) [k2, p5, k3], k2, p3
Row 8) k4, p1, [p4, k5, p1]
