This pattern is also available in the “Gone Fishing” e-book.

“Loaves and Fishes” is a customizable towel, placemat or runner with a fish design that expands and multiplies. Simple repeats allow you to change the width, fish length and/or the number of fish (expanding on the Shore Lunch Cloth design).

The pattern is worked in mosaic garter stitch with two contrasting colors of yarn (one color strand alternating two rows at a time with knit & slipped stitches)

Choose contrasting solid colors or try a semi-solid tonal yarn for one of the colors. Try your camera’s “black & white” setting to look at your yarns in grayscale and check the contrast between your selection(s). The pattern provides full written instructions with (optional) positive and negative charts for making useful household linens and gifts!
