I was bored today and instead of working one of my projects that has to be completed this month, I decided to tackle a completely new project. (which is what I usually do, when I'm stressed out!)
So, I grabbed a ball of dish cloth yarn and some size 7 needles and just had fun. I casted on 30 stitches and after either knitting or purling, wrote down what I did. Once I found out it made a pattern, I just repeated it over and over again until it was the size I wanted.
The back looks like garter stitch.
Here's the pattern:
Size 7 needles
Cast on 30 stitches (or however many you want)
Used sugar and cream 100% cotton yarn.
For every first stitch, I slipped it. (if the row was knit, I slipped it knitwise. If the row was purl, I slipped it purlwise.)

Let me know if I made any errors. I wrote it down after I did each row, but may have mistyped something.
