Pattern question
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello

I am a new knitter and I made this washcloth several months ago. I do not remember what stitch pattern I used. Can anyone identify the pattern for me? I would like to make more.

Thank you

Is it a k1, p2 rib? The other side would then be k2, p1. That's what it looks like to me.

This looks to me like a reversible pattern that should look the same on front and back:
Cast on a multiple of 3 stitches.
row 1 (k2p1) across the row
row 2 k1, p1 (k2p1) across the row, k1.
Only the directions in parentheses are repeated across the row.
Love the color combination you chose. What yarn were you using?

GrumpyGramma: Thank you very much for getting back to me so quickly. I plan on knitting tonight and will try it. Thanks again.

salmonmac: Thank you for replying so quickly. You are correct, the pattern is indeed reversible. The yarn I used is Peaches and Creme cotton, the color is Purple Petunia and I bought the cone at WalMart for about $8.00. I can't find it there anymore but you can purchase it on-line on their website. I just ordered another one this morning. I will be knitting tonight and will be trying the pattern you recommended. I won't trust my memory anymore and write down any pattern I try in the future!

Are you sure that this is knitted? Appears to be a single crochet pattern.

It doesn't look like crochet to me. I'm sure salmonmac has the pattern written out correctly.

I thought it was crocheted too, through the back loop so it has a knit st column look. I can't see any purls at all.

Hi,

I tried your pattern suggestion and it is close but there is still something missing next to the knit row where it looks like a V.

Thanks.

That pattern should give you the basic repeat: a knit column (V's), a purl column (bumps) and a garter stitch column. See if you can stretch the stitches and see what's missing on either one side or the other.

I am doing a similar pattern as a border on an afghan. It is a multiple of 4 + 3 sts.
Row 1 (k3,p1) to last 3 sts, k3
Row 2 k1,p1 (k3p1) to last st. k1
This pattern is reversible.
