Bamboo Stitch Bath Mat

Yes, I’m still indulging in all of that fabulous cotton yarn out there, and still finding new ways to use it in the house. I have been creating cloth after cloth, and now it’s time to broaden our horizons a little bit and to move on to this luxurious bath mat.

Bath mats being smaller than blankets, yet larger than cloths are a pretty good transition project. This knitting pattern, in particular, allows you to experiment with a new stitch, and still enjoy the satisfaction of finishing a project. Using two strands together, this project is relatively quick to finish, yet challenging enough to enjoy. This is the pattern is going to be first on your list of stitches to experiment with.

Materials

YO = yarn over = Bring the yarn forward between the needles, then back over the top of the right needle, so that it is now in the correct position to knit the next stitch.  This is a way of increasing stitches, and create a hole in the fabric.  They are usually paired with decrease in lace patterns (YO)

Pass 1st st. over = pass first stitch over = This is the corresponding decrease in this pattern, where you will pass the stitch created by the yarn over, over the two stitches that are worked immediately after the yarn over.  Using your left needle, lift the YO over the two stitches you just knit, and off the needle.  (Pass 1st st. over)
