Tried this craft? What did you think?

Wow I am stumped as well, have tried every version my mind could come up with and no can do. Help!

I am stumped on how to do row 2 thru row 4. Is there a name for this stitch

Hi SandyB, maybe this will help you and others. The stitch is called "bobble stitch." If you Google it you will find videos on how to do it. You're basically knitting into the front and back of the 5 stitches together several times (K5tog, P5tog, etc.). As you do each K5tog and P5tog you wrap the yarn twice around the needle. This allows you to be able to work the next row.

Hi, I'm confused about Row 3 - does "wrap yarn twice around each stitch" mean each of the 5 knit tog stitches; or, does it mean to wrap twice around each stitch that knits the 5 sts tog? I have been wrapping around the 5 sts tog and find that I do not have enough sts to increase the pattern size. When I try to wrap around each of the 5 sts, getting the needle through all the sts to knit tog is not possible, so far. Maybe I'm knitting too tightly? Please tell me how to interpret this row. I love this pattern and really wish to make several of them, but this Row 3 has me stymied. Thanks for your input!

I would like to know if there is video explaining the 2nd & 3rd row ? I love this dishcloth and really need some help . Sometimes a video is easier to explain the correct way to do the stitches. Thank You !

I am also looking for how to do row 2 thru row 4. Does this stitch have a name?
