Notes

1 skein left…trying a pillow in two designs.

As for dishcloth, cast on three, increase to 45, two rows plain, decrease to 3. Pick up 34 sts on three sides, decrease at corners, every other row, as an envelope.

Ran out of T&Q before the envelope flap, so I grabbed that mistake skein of regular homespun, picked up 49sts on size10s, decreased one on each side, right side rows…added toothy border. Sewn closed, can cut and restitch after washing, when necessary.
Pattern for “Toothy” bind off…
Pick up stitches along edges of flap. Make sure you have multiple of 5 sts (or close, it’s fudge-able at the end, if you need to).
Knit 5, turn
:: Sl1, k4, turn
P1, k3, turn
Sl1, k3, turn
P1, k2, turn
Sl1, k2, turn
P1, k1, turn
Sl1, k1 turn
P1, (k1, psso)x5 (5sts bound off), k 4. ::
Repeat from :: to :: until five sts remain, then work final “tooth.”

Finished pillow #1 Nov. 2…will re-open project when I start pillow #2. Need more yarn…! lol!
