BFF has asked me for this pattern a while back. So II thought I would share it here.
This is not my stitch pattern, just how I used it to make this towel.
Size 7 needles
100% dishcloth cotton
All right side rows: Knit across
CO 59 sts
R1: (wrong side) k3, p3, *k7, p3, repeat from * to last 3sts, k3
R2: (right side) Knit across
Repeat rows 1&2, 4x more
You should have 5 ridges in the k7 sections on the right side.
R11: K6, *p7, k3, repeat from * to last 3sts, k3
R12: K across
Repeat rows 11&12 2x more
You should have 3 ridges in the k3 sections on the right side
Repeat these 16 rows 8x more
Then repeat rows 1&2 5x more
BO on final right side row.
59 sts makes a towel about 14" wide.
For a smaller towel co 49 sts
For a cloth I co 39 sts and do 4 repeats then the first section again.
