Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Diamond Pattern Dishcloth Pattern

Diamond Pattern Dish cloth
based on Barbara Walker’s Two-Tone Lattice pattern
Second Treasury of Stitches

Carry the alternate colors up the side of the work, by twisting on strand around the other. This pattern produces a very thick dense fabric, so don’t work to tightly or go up a needle size. I used size 6 and it was too tight. Next time I will go up to a size 7.

Using variegated yarn for yarn B gives a very interesting effect in the ss and reverse ss

Multiple of 6 stitches plus 4

Color A (which forms the lattice)

With Color A cast on 40 stitches, knit one row

Row 1 (Right side) With B, k 2, sl 1 wtib * k 4, sl 2, repeat from * end with k 4, sl 1, k2

Row 2: With B, p 2, sl 1 wyif, * p 4, sl 2, repeat from * end with p 4 sl 1, k2

Row 3: Repeat row 1

Row 4: Repeat row 2

Row 5: With A, repeat row 1

Row 6: With A, K 2, sl 1 wyif * k 4 sl 2, repeat from * ending with k 4 sl 1, k2

Row 7: With B, k 4 * sl 2 wyib, k 4, repeat from * end with sl 2, k 4

Row 8: With B, p 4 * sl 2 wyif, p 4, repeat from * end with sl 2, p 4

Row 9: Repeat row 7

Row 10: Repeat row 8

Row 11: With A, repeat Row 5

Row 12: With A, k 4, * sl 2 wyif, k 4, repeat from * end with sl 2 K 4

Repeat rows 1 – 12 , nine times for Dish Cloth

In the sample shown I alternated stockinet stitch with reverse stockinet stitch. You would set that up on row two, by knitting one diamond and purling the next.
