Cabbage Patch Knitted Dishcloth

Cabbage Patch Knitted Dishcloth

I think the hazelnut stitch from Super Stitches Knitting looks a lot like a field of cabbages. The green yarn helps complete the transformation from filbert to brassica.

Shown in Lily Sugar’n Cream Hot Green.
I used size 6 needles–use your preferred dishcloth cotton needle size.

The first 4 sts and last 4 sts of every row are knit in seed stitch: Knit the purl stitches and purl the knit stitches. (Or use any border you prefer, garter stitch, for example.)

Have people had trouble making this one? I have. Does (K1, yo, K1) mean repeated once?I do not see it started but as I was making this it was getting skinnier and skinnier so I know adding one and subtracting 2 two rows later wil lmake it skinner as you go. I guess I am wondering if it should be read K1, yo, K1, yo, K1 or K1, yo, K1, K1, yo, K1

Thank you.

A.W.–This can be tricky– “(K1, yo, K1) in the same stitch” is stitched on one stitch without removing the stitch from the left-hand needle until after the second K1. This is your increase row and it increases 2 sts each time you “(K1, yo, K1) in the same stitch”. Two rows later the “P3 tog” decrease will eliminate two sts. It can be confusing so let me know if this doesn’t make it clear and I will try to help.
