Diagonal Bee Stitch Cloth
This pattern is an easy variation of Grandmother's Favorite by using the Bee Stitch instead of garter stitch. I must give Rhonda of Knitting Knonsense fame credit for the idea for this cloth after I saw her baby blanket in her ravelry notebook. She kindly gave me permission to post the directions for this super easy pattern! Thanks Rhonda :)
YO = yarn over
K1SB = k1 in stitch below (directions found here)
K2tog = K2 together
With worsted weight yarn,
Cast on 4 stitches with size 7 (us) needles for cloth [10 1/2 (us) for blanket]
Row 2: K2, YO, K2
Row 3: K2, YO, K3
R0w 4: K2, YO, K4
Row 5: K2, YO, K5
Row 6: K2, YO, K1, K1SB, K4
Row 7: K2, YO, Knit across
Row 8: K2, YO, K1, K1SB, k1, K1SB, K4
Row 9: K2, YO, Knit across
Continue in this manner always starting every row with K2, YO, K1 and ending every row with K4.
Odd rows: Knit across
Even rows: *(K1SB, K1 ) repeat from *
Until there are 50 stitches on your needle. (more stitches if your are making a blanket...amount of stitches will depend on desired size)
R0w 1: K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, *(K1SB, K1) repeat from * ending K4
Row 2: K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, knit across
Repeat these two rows until there are 4 stitches on your needle, bind off and weave in ends.
