That 'classic' knit look?
So I am working on a washcloth and didnt realize what it would look like if I did 100% knit stitch. While I think it is cute, I am looking for that "classic" knit look. KWIM? What combination of stitiches do I need to do to get that look?
TIA
Jessica

ok, so I am not a pro knitter but there is this one stitch that I am doing for a scraf that would look really nice as a dishcloth, it goes like this.

Knit 1, slip the next stitch but, you put the yarn in front slip the stitch move the yarn back and knit the next. So you would do this over every other stitch,

knit 1 slip 1 with the yarn in front and knit the next. Then for the WS you would Purl 1 slip the next stitch but, you put the yarn in back.

I'm sure an expereince knitter could tell you what the name of that stitch is, in the book it's called a woven knit.

You're probably thinking of stockingette stitch.

Which is knit one side, and purl the other..

Remember, though, that plain stockinette stitch curls when what you're knitting is just stockinette. If you want to do a washcloth or scarf with it, you need to add a border--either knitting the first and last five stitches of every row, or doing a seed stitch edging on those stitches.
