Daquiri Dishcloth
























!Thank you Linda, for pointing out my error in row 1. It has been corrected. That line should end with K3, not K1.

Well, I had been working on a dishcloth pattern designed to use up all the partial balls leftover from other dishcloths. I have a design in mind that I really like, but the test knitting has gone horribly. It will actually be a very quick and easy knit when the pattern is finished, but I keep changing one stitch here and there, in a very OCD fashion. I finally realized I had to put it to the side for a while, and work on something else. The scrap dishcloth is coming...eventually. In the mean time here's something cool for the summer!
I wanted a border that is more fun than garter stitch or seed stitch for this cloth. This border is included in the instructions. If you want a plain border remove the first and last 5 sts of each row, and rows 1-4, and60-63, and substitute your own border.
