EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 53 stitches) and divide these stitches by number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 9) = 5.9. In this example, decrease by working each 5th and 6th stitch together. When increasing, make 1 yarn over after each 6th stitch. On the next row work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge in height = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1. First row = right side.

CLOTHS – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth. You work a total of 6 cloths; 1 cloth in each colour.

CLOTH:
Cast on 53 stitches with needle size 3 mm and Cotton Light. Work 1 RIDGE – read description above, then knit 1 row where you decrease 9 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 44 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side.
Then work waffle pattern as follows – from the right side: Work 2 stitches in garter stitch, repeat A.1 until there are 2 stitches left on row (= 20 repeats of 2 stitches) and finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch. Repeat A.1 upwards – REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures approx. 22 cm – adjust to after a row 2 in A.1, work the next row as follows (= wrong side): 2 stitches in garter stitch, * purl 1, lift the loop which lies around the stitch and purl it together with the stitch on the needle *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left on row and finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch. Then knit 1 row where you increase 9 stitches evenly spaced = 53 stitches. Knit 3 rows and loosely cast off.

Liebes Team, ich finde sie wunderschön aber ich weiß nicht wofür ich sie verwenden sollte. Ich hätte Angst dass sie schnell verschmutzen, nicht gut trocknen etc pp. Wenn Sie mir bitte erklären könnten, wofür sie verwendet werden! Dankeschön.

Liebe Fran, sie können als Waschlappen für den Körper oder auch zum Abwaschen benutzt. Die sollen regelmäßig gewaschen werden, deshalb ist ein "Set" von mehrere immer eine gute Idee. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
