New Cloth Design

I don't know if everyone is aware of this but Peaches N Creme has come out with a new line of cotton yarn called "Premium". Right now there are 8 colors (check them out at http://www.peaches-creme.com/Premium.htm)


Anyway, I thought it would be nice to come up with a design to show off their colors. They sponsors all of our games and our yearly calendar by providing yarn and we just wanted to recognize them for providing endless fun for us.


The cloth is listed below. It is a lace and ridge cloth, on the order of feather and fan but I wanted to make a cloth that had scallops in it showing off all of the colors. I named the cloth using the same initials as their company (P-N-C). The name of the cloth is "Promises N Color". There are two other colors being added to this line so make sure you check the site regularly.


Promises N Color Washcloth

Copyright © Janet Nogle January 2009


Size: One Size
Finished Measurements: 8 ¼ X 8 ¼
Materials: US #6 Knitting Needle, 1 Skein of Peaches N Crème “Premium” yarn (Pictured in photo: Dk Pansy Ombre #214.)

This cloth is dedicated to the new “Premium” colors from Peaches N Crème. I made the name of the cloth fit the initials of the company (P-N-C). It is a cloth in lace and ridges. It is similar to the Feather N Fan cloth but the decreases are P2Together instead of K2Together to make a scallop effect on the row.

Cast On: Multiple of 11 stitches (I used 4 stitches for the border making the total = 37 stitches)

Border:
Row 1: K1, P1 Across Row
Row 2: K1, P1 Across Row

Pattern:
Row 1: (RS) K1, P1, Knit 33, P1, K1
Row 2: (WS) K1, P1, Purl 33, P1, K1
Row 3: (RS) K1, P1 *(P2Tog) x2, (YO, K1) x3, P2Tog, YO, P2Tog; Repeat from *, end P1,

K1
Row 4: (WS) K1, P1, Purl 33, P1, K1

Repeat the above sequence of rows till cloth is size you want it.
(I repeated the sequence of rows 11 times and then repeat rows 1 and 2 once
more.
Border:
Row 1: K1, P1 Across Row
Row 2: K1, P1 Across Row
Bind Off
I hope you like the cloth.
