Debbie Bliss Cotton DK (and a Wee Washcloth Pattern)

We have the bright and sweet Debbie Bliss Cotton DK in the shop again! This beautiful matte cotton is great for many kinds of projects...blankets, sweaters, baby things, washcloths. 
Sally was inspired to cast on a little cloth using the shop favorite grellow, and the finished project is so soft. This sort of thing would make such a lovely house warming present or baby shower gift.
Here is the simple little pattern for this cute cloth.

Using a US6 needle, cast on 34 stitches. 
Work 5 rows of stockinette. 
Row 6: knit 5, purl 24, knit 5. 
Row 7: purl 5, knit 24, purl 5.
Continue with rows 6 and 7 for 35 more rows.
Finish with 5 rows of stockinette and cast off!

Sally reports that there is enough yarn in one ball to add about and inch in width and length, which would be about 4 or 5 additional stitches and about 6 or 7 rows.
