No # 1 Dishcloth | Crazy Daisy

Well, I have had a whole heap of idea’s emailed/commented to me about what this cloth should be called, 13 in all! I have decided to go with Crazy Daisy (thanks BunnyStamping), after some discussion with Mr. Sew-Funky…

Here are the choices we were given;
pinwheel (twice)
sunflower
crazy daisy
fireworks
catherine wheel
in motion
pink fractal
cutting edge
circular teeth
kaleidescope
whirlwind
spider rose

I am now set with names for any new cloths I make! Thanks, everyone who helped me out with suggestions!!!

Now, without further ado, I present the pattern for the CRAZY DAISY…

Materials: 1 ball worsted weight cotton yarn, size 4mm needles. I used Anchor Magicline for this cloth, which gave it a lovely effect – it’s a self-striping yarn.

Instructions:
Cast on 18 stitches.
This cloth is made up of 8 wedges, all exactly the same. Then the edge is sewn together, the threads are sewn in and the cloth is complete. :)

Every wedge:
Row 1 and all odd rows: K across to last 3 stitches, p3.
Row 2: K3, YO, K to last st, turn.
Row 4: K3, YO, K to last 2 sts, turn.
Row 6: K3, YO, K to last 3 sts, turn.
Row 8: Bind off 3 sts, K2, YO, K to last 4 sts, turn.
Row 10: K3, YO, K to last 5 sts, turn.
Row 12: K3, YO, K to last 6 sts, turn.
Row 14: Bind off 3 sts, K2, YO, K to last 7 sts, turn.
Row 16: K3, YO, K to last 8 sts, turn.
Row 18: K3, YO, K to last 9 sts, turn.
Row 20: Bind off 3 sts, K2, YO, K to last 10 sts, turn.
Row 22: K3, YO, K to last 11 sts, turn.
Row 24: K3, YO, K to last 12 sts, turn.
Row 26: Bind off 3 sts, K across row.

Knitting Nana made this cloth in variegated yarn… Looks FANTASTIC!

    Hi,

    Sorry, I don’t know how to contact you privately. First, thank you for sharing your patterns with us.
    Second, I’ve been working this pattern, and as written, it seems to only need six wedges to make a circle. I think if you left off rows 22 – 26, you would get eight wedges per circle – will try it later. aj, aka banphriosa at yahoo dot com

    As a beginning knitter, I am confused about finishing the wedges of the crazy daisy dishcloth. Do you bind it off after row 26 or do I leave them open and join them that way?

    Thanks,
    Nancy

      Hi Nancy,

      You can do either/or. I usually bind off and sew together. :)

      Cheers
