But I wanted to try some graph paper I worked out for making washcloths. This worked for me just fine with worsted weight cotton. I think I used sugar-n-cream (the ball band had fallen off).
I used Own-Two_Hands method and my own graph paper.
(shown with the purl side since it showed up the pattern better)
Using needles that are a bit smaller then the recommended for your yarn, cast on 40 stitches.
Bind off, weave in ends. Block lightly.
Whew. Okay.. now I understand why to make the alternated pattern with the purl and knit stitches clearly marked. I knit it off the basic graph, but writing the pattern, I'm so glad I had it the other way as well!
Here are the graphs if you prefer to work that way.
With purls and knits marked, shaded blocks are knit stitches.
I recommend using a post it to keep track of where you are in the pattern.
AND! Last but not least, the actual real reason I knit a batty wash cloth.. the graph paper..
It's marked every ten rows/stitches from the bottom up.
TOS? Pretty simple. Use it if you want to. If you post patterns to the net, I'd love to see them. You have my permission to use it for classes.
More later. I've got pretty pictures for you I took out walking yesterday at Potter's Marsh.
