Woolly Worm Dishcloth Blogiversary Loom A Long

Welcome to my blogiversary loom-a-long!  I will be posting this a few rows at a time so keep checking back for more rows.  Make sure you click on subscribe in the comments so you'll be emailed when I add more rows.

Gauge is not important for this stitch pattern, but the sample was done on the Kiss regular modular loom on first setting.

Yarn: I used a variegated cotton yarn for this.  Peaches n Creme Shaded Brown.  You can use variegated or solid for this in any color.  Post a comment and let me know what color you're using.  You might consider double stranded if working on the KK Looms.

I will have a drawing for finished projects emailed to me by Sunday midnight.  Leave a comment here too in case my spam folder eats the email ;).

Knit 5 garter stitch ridges - 10 rows total, alternate a row of knit then a row of purl.

Bind Off (BO) using the super stretchy bind off (http://yarngear.com/looms/tips.htm - scroll down to the bottom).  Note: if you are using the Kiss loom for this bind-off don't wrap the yarn behind the pins (it will make it really loose and you'll have to cinch it up a bit), just do the bind-off just like you would on a Knifty Knitter at the front of the pegs.
