November 1st 2016 KAL


We will do this a little differently this time.  This pattern I have re-named for our KAL as Thanksgiving Pie.  It is an old standard that some of you may have already knitted at one time but this is another dishcloth to celebrate Thanksgiving.


(This is also known as Knitted Round Dishcloth).

This is an old pattern that has been passed along by word of mouth for generations, or scribbled on index cards, and scraps of paper.
Finished Size:  Standard dishcloth size (for larger, change needles to larger size.)
Materials: 4-ply cotton yarn, such as Peaches and Cream;  knitting needles of appropriate size to match the yarn (I used #6). For the seasonal cloth you can use, red, orange or brown.  The colors would stand for Cherry, Pumpkin or Mincemeat pie.
Cast on 15 sts.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: k3, YO, k until one st remains on left needle. DO NOT KNIT LAST ST, turn.
Row 3 (and all odd rows): knit
Row 4: k3, YO, k until 2 sts rem on left ndl. Turn.
Row 6: k3, YO, k until 3 sts rem on left ndl. Turn.
Row 8: Bind off 3 sts, k2, YO, k until 4 sts rem on left ndl. Turn.
Row 10: k3, YO, k until 5 sts rem on left ndl.  Turn.
Row12:  k3, YO, k until 6 sts rem on left ndl.  Turn.
Row 14:  Bind off 3 sts, k2, YO, k until 7 sts rem on left ndl.  Turn.
Row 16:  k3, YO, k until 8 sts rem on left ndl.  Turn.
Row 18:  k3, YO, k until 9 sts rem on left ndl.  Turn.
Row 20:  Bind off 3 sts, knit across (15sts total).
Repeat rows 1-20 seven more times.  Bind off, leaving a long tail for sewing the seam.  Sew cast on edge to bind off edge, and sew around center and pull to close hole.

The link to this pattern is listed above in case you want to visit the sight and print out the document from there.
