NOT paper towel kitchen towel(Pattern below)
A surprising transformation

a mundane  chore ( counter clean up )

turns itself to

……..–indulging yourself..

when  one makes exactly the right tool for that act.

Turning the an act

from a  mindless chore- —       to one in which one lives in the moment

****************************************************

The lazy purl makes it easy and the seed stitch is perfect for absorbing water!

YARN:  Brown Sheep Cotton  Fleece  ( 80% cotton – 20% wool)

or any worsted   100% cotton ,  or  tripled linen or cotton/linen.

***************************************************************************

Gauge    16 stitches   24  rows  in 4 inches        13″ x 15″

Cast on :   52  on size 10  needles  14″( to allow for mighty shrinkage)

(I used  cable cast on)

Seed stitch all the way

row 1     *K1, P1*

row 2  * P1 ,  K1 *        alternate rows one and two

or   CO  51 * K1 P1  K1*  repeat each row

Knit for   15 “‘   then   bind off

( or knit ’til the end of the skein if you want it longer  )

NOTE: wind into ball first ( learn from my error!)
