Show your Mom your love with this knit dishcloth. The picture is the word MOM enclosed in a heart. The design portion of the dishcloth is a combination of garter stitch and reverse stockinette.
Although this cloth contains a word, the design is symmetrical so no adjustments need to be made for lefty knitters.
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 middle portion of this cloth is reverse stockinette on a stockinette background. The cloth requires careful attention to the pattern as every row in the middle is a design row. The rest of the picture is created in garter stitch on a stockinette background. The border is seed stitch, but the pattern is written so that you may substitute a preferred border if you wish.
