Bowtie Stitch

This is a very simple pattern that can be used for practically any project in stockinette. It's a repeat of six stitches, and the only thing you'll need to learn is to knit into the stitch below the one you'd normally knit (k1b) , the stitch between the purls in the pattern. If you do this wrong you'll end up dropping a stitch down a row, so make sure to watch this.

For the dishcloth:

CO 42 sts

Knit garter for 3 rows (keep the K3 garter border throughout pattern)

(r1) K3, P to last 3 sts, K3

(r2) Knit all

(r3) K3, [P3, K3]* repeat to border, K3

(r4) K3, [P1, K1b, P1, K3]* repeat to border, K3

(r5) repeat row 1

(r6) repeat row 2

(r7) K3, [K3, P3]* repeat to border, K3

(r8) K3, [K3, P1, K1b, P1]* repeat to border, K3

repeat these 8 rows to desired length, Knit garter 3 rows, BO.

The pattern will look like tiny bows or bowties, see picture.
