Picture of Knit a Round Purple Dish Cloth
Over 10 years ago a friend brought me a pattern for a round, knitted dish cloth, and challenged me to figure it out.  I was already love to the idea of knitted dish clothes so I accepted the challenge.  It took me a while to figure out what the pattern was trying to get me to do.  When the first one was done, it was lovely and I started to make them exclusively.  This pattern is an easy pattern, that works from the center to the outer edge and a seam is sewn to close the circle. Since I already had purple 100% cotton worsted weight yarn, this one will be purple.    So onward to knitting a lovely purple dish cloth.

Figured out where to repeat the pattern from. Went wrong a couple of times but not bad for my second time following a pattern!

At the end of the first section, it says repeat from *-*. I can't find the first asterix.

Try it now, in step 4. Thanks for commenting.
If you only do 4 sections, bind it off and sew it together, it make a very cute baby hate
And I still ended up with 14 at the end

I don't under stand where you are in the pattern. At any one time you will have a total of 15, or 16 or 17 or 18 stitches on both needles. If you only have 14 either you started out with 14 instead of 15 stitches or your lost a stitch somewhere.
I keep getting 8 on the right instead of 9

Could be used as coasters.

A lilttle large for coasters, so use the same pattern, but thinner yarn and smaller needles- smaller result =coaster. Enjoy!
