I just finished knitting up this little cloth! and I just love the pattern!
~ it is very easy to do - & knits up very fast - and while I'd never done this stitch before, it was simple to get the hang of it.
You slip five stitches on the rows, then after 4 rows, you pick those stitches up as a group and make the *butterfly*!
I think it looks cool !
For my cloth, I used sugar and cream Natural self-striping yarn which is deep red, green and beige - and the pattern called for a size 6, but I knit loose so I used a size 5, not knowing if that would be affected - but I think any size needle would do.
It is called the 'Christmas Cloth' - which I found in Knitting Pattern Central's lists -
and you can go to the pattern directly at: 'Ribbed For Your Pleasure.'
