Watermelon Washcloth Pattern!

Hi Knitters,
Today I am offering you a big, juicy slice of a watermelon (washcloth). Watch the seeds. Here are some things you might like to know if you are interested in knitting a slice or two for yourself:
Yarn: Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille (100% combed cotton; 98 yards/50 grams), 1 skein each in Bougainvillea #1219, Bleached  1058, Fern #2342 and Christmas #0517 and Black #9598 (optional for seeds)
Note: Any worsted weight cotton will work! Also, if you just wanted to use pink and green and no seeds you will only need two colors.

Needles: US size 6 or size to obtain gauge

Finished measurements: 9 inches wide by 6 inches tall

Gauge: 4 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch

cast on 
slip stitch
single crochet

As you can see, this one is a beginner level pattern! If you don't want to crochet the edging, you could easily pick up and knit one row of each color for the edging and then bind off and repeat in all three colors.
And because today is my 20th wedding anniversary, I am putting up the Watermelon Washcloth on sale for awhile. It is available for purchase, for now, at $3.00! This will be for a short while only.

Also, if you place an order through July 13th at the sale price, you will automatically be entered in a drawing to win 4 skeins of Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille in the watermelon colors! That is a good deal!! It is so beautiful and squishy, you will love it.

To order the Watermelon Washcloth Pattern click here! The pattern will always be available on my sidebar in My Pattern Shop. It's the perfect summer treat.

Remember that I personally send out all orders through email with an attached pdf of the pattern. Please be patient if there is a slight delay.

Have a good Wednesday, Knitters.
best, susie
p.s. Please hop over and help yourselves to my new free pattern on Spud & ChloĆ« for a cute little frog named, Ribbit! Let me know how it goes: )

First; Happy Anniversary!! Second; I don't know if it's the rainy weather but I'm having trouble understanding 'knitting a row of each (rind)color and binding off and then a row of each color. Huh? (Thanks)
