Crash course in chart reading- it could be another color, but I just use knit and purl. Odd rows (right side) are read right to left, even rows (wrong side) are left to right. White squares on the right side are knits, wrong side are purls. Black squares are the opposite, purl on right side, knit on wrong side. I'm going to try to do a written version as well, those were just a bout of insomnia last night I'll probably get them written up in the next couple days...

Perfect answer! That was my gut feeling but I just wanted to make sure. I am in! I have been wanting to do a charted design forever and this is perfect! And now I get to go buy some more yarn

What yarn do have to use? If it's something I can get I'd love to join in I never do anything for New Year.

Hi nobones!

If you want it to be a useable dishcloth, I'd use cotton yarn.

But, if you are just making a memento of our event, you can use any yarn you want!

And the weight of the yarn doesn't matter, because it's not made to be worn. So, it can be any size. I would just use the size needles that are recommended on your yarn band.

I think I'd like to make it as a keepsake and then stick it in my scrapbook. Thanks Shandeh I'm in.
