Well, it’s a new year and I thought I might start it by giving everyone a free pattern.
PENTACLE DISHCLOTH by Alynxia Designworks
Note: For those non-Pagans out there, simply make the star solid (for a sheriff badge look) and/or remove the outer circle.
I’ve written it as a knitted dishcloth pattern, but feel free to use the chart for whichever craft or project takes your fancy. As it is simply a worsted weight square, it would work equally well for afghans, bags, etc. Be creative!
1 50g ball of worsted weight dishcloth cotton (I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in “Jewels” for the one in the picture)
Pair of 5mm needles (or whichever size to get gauge)
Yarn needle (to weave in ends)
Size: Approximately 9″ square.
Gauge: 18 sts/24 rows = 4″ in stockingette st.
Cast on 39 sts.
Work pattern starting with Row 1 of chart reading Right to Left on odd numbered rows (RS) and Left to Right on even numbered rows (WS) ending with Row 39 (RS).
Bind off in pattern. Weave in ends.
Hoping this pattern brings blessings and a little Magick to your 2008.
