My most recent boredem buster

I whipped up a new dishcloth for myself last night. I had some pretty yarn left-over from making my cousin a dishcloth, so I had to tweak the pattern a little. The pattern is super easy:

1 ball of knit worsted weight cotton (Sugar N’ Cream) 50 gm size
Size 9 to 10 1/2 needles

Cast on 4 sts. Row 1: Knit one row.
Row 2: K2, YO, knit to the end of the row.
Repeat row 2 until there are 40 sts
Next row: K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, knit to the end of the row.
Continue decreasing until 4 sts left. Cast off.

 I had about 1/2 of a ball left (I forgot the name of the color, but it was by Sugar N' Cream) and I used size 9 needles.  Because I was running low on yarn I starting decreasing after I had 35 stitches.

I found the pattern at Dish and Wash Cloth Mania.  Can't wait to try some of the other neat pattern!
