As promised here is the free washer pattern that I gave a sneak peak to in my last post....
'Vintage Lace Washer'
Using 4mm knitting needles and 8ply cotton cast on 41sts. Knit 5 rows.
Row 1 - K4 *K1, YO, K2, sl1, K2tog, psso, K2, YO* (rep from * to * until 5 sts remain) K5.
Row 2 (and alt rows) - K4, Purl to last 4 sts, K4.
Row 3 - K4, *K1, YO, K2, K3Tog(purlwise), K2, YO* (rep from * to * until 5 sts remain) K5.
Rep rows 1-4 a total of 10 times.
Knit 5 rows and cast off. Weave in ends and if you like, make a tag for hanging using one of your ends by crocheting 12 chain then slipping back into first chain to create loop..
I'd love to hear any feed back on this pattern from those that are willing to give it a try... The one that I made in the pic is not blocked, blocking will help to make a squarer looking cloth...
