I started making a dishcloth using the pattern:
Cast on 42 stitches (or a multiple of 18 plus 6)
Knit 3 rows of garter stitch for the border.
Row 4: Knit Row 5: K 3, P to last 3 stitches K3
Row 6: K3, *(K2 tog) 3 times, (yo, K1) 6 times, (K2 tog) 3 times, rep from * to last 3 sts K3
Row 7: Knit
... and I stopped after awhile because I thought I was doing something wrong. Wouldn't continuing this pattern just make more and more stitches as you go on?? As in, a ton more than you started with?
Am I just missing the trick here?
