I saw one that is a giant dishcloth pattern


I think it would knit up pretty fast indeed.

I just started knitting one 2 days ago and its going along pretty quickly and its so easy to do. it is a shadow triangles pattern. i cant remember which site i got it from but it was supposed to be for just a 9 in by 9 in square but i made it bigger. it is so easy i memorized it right away. AND the good thing is that it is the same on both sides!

I cast on 150 stitches and worked 6 rows in garter (knit every row) then i knit first 5 stitches, ,placed marker, worked pattern till last 5 sts, placed marker, and knit 5. When i'm at the length i want to finish at i will knit another 6 rows.

the pattern goes like this: it is a multiple of 5 stitches.
Row1: knit
row2: (k1, p4) till end
row 3: (k3, p2) till end
Row4: (k3, p2) till end
row 5: (k1, p4) till end
row 6: knit
