Double Bump Scarf or Dishcloth
An excellent scarf or dishcloth pattern! Dishcloths that comes out square and lay flat - scarves that look great or male or female - an excellent pattern for making gift-giving scarves! Both sides are beautiful, so this makes a great reversible pattern. The stitch pattern is a multiple of 3 +1 - so cast on any amount you want and get the same great look! Looks great in solids, ombres and stripes!
Materials: ANY yarn you want to use!
Needles: Needle your yarn states you should use - or whatever you want.
On the dishcloth I used Sugar & Cream cotton yarn on size 7 needles. On the scarf I like worsted weight yarn with size 8.
Directions for Dishcloth & Scarf:
(Dishcloth) - Cast on 37 stitches (or any combination of 3 + 1)
(Scarf) - Cast on 31 stitches (or any combination of 3 + 1)
Row 1: Slip 1st stitch as if to knit, (P2, K1) across to end of row. (RS)
Row 2: Slip 1st stitch as if to purl, (K2, P1) across to end of row. (WS)
Row 3: Slip 1st stitch as if to knit, Knit across to end of row. (RS)
Row 4: Slip 1st stitch as if to purl, Purl across to end of row. (WS)
(Dishcloth) - Repeat these 4 rows 12 more times ending on Row 2. You will have 13 rows of the pattern.
(Scarf) - Repeat these 4 rows until desired length ending on Row 2.
Bind off in Purl.
The bind off row is (RS) facing you - would have been row 3 if pattern had continued. It really doesn't matter what row you bind off on, but after many tests, this pattern seems to look best with this bind off.
