Do you think this pattern is too kitchen-y?

For this size....the first working row would be:

K4, slip 1, K5, slip 1, K5, slip 1, K5, slip 1, K 4

The first working row of the offset part would be:

K1, slip 1, K5, slip 1, K5, slip 1, K5, slip 1, K5, slip 1, K1
I certainly do not think they look too kitchen-y. I think it is all about the yarn colors, and you are using soft colors. That would be just darling. I always use patterns for different things. I learning how to adapt a pattern into what I want to make. I knited one towel cloth for a table runner because it had a pretty lacy design. I just made it longer.

I think a baby washcloth is perfect!!!
