Shaker Dishcloths & Coasters

In the book, A History of Hand Knitting by Ricchard Rutt, he describes a dishcloth knit by Colonial American Shakers.  "The wash cloths were, circular, made of 16 segments of garter stitch, arranged in alternating colours".

Very Pink redesigned a friendlier pattern that has 12 color segments and uses larger needles than the size 0.

Pattern includes row-by-row instruction for dishcloths (with and without a picot edge), coasters (with and without a picot edge), and guidelines for modifying the pattern to any size.

With the instruction, this pattern is appropriate for anyone with at least an “advanced beginner” skill level, meaning confident with the basic stitches. (This pattern is knit stitches only.)
