“I'm a really slow knitter
without magic.”

Assignment One

This month's washcloth is a simple one: a garter stitch washcloth.

Cast on 36 stitches. Knit each row until the cloth is about square (this depends on how you knit, but somewhere in the range of 55-60 rows should probably do it; I found that 58 rows plus the bind off made a pretty good square). Bind off. Weave in your ends.

Take a picture of your finished cloth and send it — as an attachment or a link, your choice — to [email protected], using the subject Knitting Assignment 1 - Your HOL name.

Due February 29th. Worth 30 points.
