The blueish photo is from one of DDs dishcloths in progress for her house.I have no idea what it may be called, but it makes a firm yet flexible fabric, with little edge curling.

The stitch pattern is worked on an even number of stitches.

Row 1: k1, *yo, k2, pass yo over 2 knit stitches. Repeat from * to last stitch, k 1.
Row 3: k2, *yo, k2 pass yo over 2 knit stitches. Repeat from *, to last 2 stitches, k2.
Rows 2 & 4: purl across.

Easy peasy, and perfect TV or visiting knitting. The picot bind off, not so much.
That is a very pretty doily!
