Knit Rags

One of my coworkers bought a knit dishrag recently and she said she LOVES it. She wants to learn to knit and is hosting a crafting day tomorrow so I made her a few cotton dishrags as a hostess gift. I've read online that these rags are great for scrubbing glass.

They are very quick little projects, I used the below pattern (I tried both a size 8 and 10 needle and was happy with both gauges).

Materials: Sugar and Cream yarn; Size 6 or 7 needles (US)
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1: Knit 4
Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row.
Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle.
Row 3: Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row.
Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches on the needle.
You can now either bind off or do a round of single crochet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it.
