You have to read the pattern a few times to get the hang of it. It could have been better written but it is basically a rib pattern and then reversed. It does add texture though. I like to knit dishcloths. They work up quickly and last a long time. Thank you for the pattern.

This is a quick and easy wash cloth pattern to make. It has enough texture to make it perfect for washing. I would probably make this in off white or aqua and make it part of a bath gift set, it's that nice, just add some handmade scented soap or a bath bomb.

After I put in my email and code number and click submit what steps do I take to get the pattern to print,I click on pattern and save and it says remove but I can't get it

@pbb1030 8851970: Yes! As long as you have registered for a user account on AllFreeKnitting, you will be able to save your pattern in your account until you have a printer. Then you can access your saved patterns using the "My Knitting Patterns" tab in the upper lefthand corner of the screen. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeKnitting

I really like your site, but right now I don't have a printer. Will save pattern work until I get one? thank you, Susan

Hi dianasews, I logged in and then after the second attempt I got the pattern.

Hi all - We are currently working with the designer to resolve the bandwidth issue. We hope to have the pattern back up and running soon. Thank you for your patience. -The editors of AllFreeKnitting

I would really love to make this cloth but I too keep getting the bandwidth error message.........can you help?

keep getting the bandwidth error.

I keep getting this error message "bandwidth limit exceeded" and no pattern! Please advise.

Hi budman42 0671986 - To print the entire page including photos, try hitting the button on the top right corner of your keyboard that says PrintScrn. This should take a "mental photo" of what's on your screen. Then copy and paste that into a Word document and hit "Print." This should allow you to print both the instructions and the pix. Hope this helps! -The editors of AllFreeKnitting

the knitting instructions print but not the pix! how can I remedy this??

I would like to know if the directions are correct by ending P2 K2 and then K3 It does not seem correct and I like the pattern could some one let me know It means you would be ending a total of K5
