The picture on this knit dishcloth is of a yummy candy cane. The stripes on the candy cane are made in seed stitch to give it an interesting texture.
The design is not symmetrical so some adjustments might need to be made for lefty knitters depending upon which way they wish the candy cane to be facing.
As mentioned, this cloth is different than my others. For those of you familiar with my garter stitch technique of every-other design rows, please note that the picture is created in seed stitch on a stockinette background. The cloth requires careful attention to the pattern as every row is a design row. The border is seed stitch, but the pattern is written so that you may substitute a preferred border if you wish.
