Knitted Trellis Dishcloth

by Daisy

This little cloth is an easy cable project, good to get your feet wet cabling-wise.  If you don’t have a cable needle, a bent paperclip, a spare knitting needle, or the like will do.

Knitted Trellis Cloth

Yarn:  Your favorite dishcloth cotton, such as Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, any color

Needles: I use size 6 circs or straights–use your preferred for dish/wash cloths

Pattern stitches:

T3L: slip 1 st onto CN (cable needle) and hold at front of work, P2, K1 from CN.

T3R: slip 2 sts onto CN and hod at back of work, K1, P2 from CN.

Cast on 36 sts.

Knit all for 3 rows.

Rows 4 and 6: K3, * P2, K2, P2, repeat from * to last 3 sts, K3

Rows 5 and 7: K3, * K2, P2, K2, repeat from * to last 3 sts, K3.

Row 8:K3, * T3R, T3L, rep from * to last 3 sts, k3.

Rows 9, 11, & 13: K3, * P1, K4, P1, repeat from * to last 3 sts, K3.

Rows 10 & 12: K3, * K1, P4, K1, rep from * to last 3 sts, K3.

Row 14: K3, * T3L, T3R, rep from * to last 3 sts, K3.

Row 15: As Row 5.

Repeat Rows 4-15 three times.

Knit all 3 rows.

Bind off, cut yarn, and sew in ends.

I’ve been afraid to try cables but this I’ll take a stab at! I love to knit dish cloths. It gives me a chance to learn new stitches without feeling overwhelmed 🙂
