So far, I've made 4. and wondering how many I can get from one cone of yarn. I like the idea of buying a new cone each month assuming it only takes me a month to finish it. Each of the Walmart's I've been to all seem to carry their own colors. There isn't such a wide variety of colors this way but enough to keep me busy for awhile.
I like the fact that I can pick up this at anytime and work on it. No need to count stitches until the decreasing part.
Here is the pattern again in case you are interested: This is the first thing I ever learned to knit and a friend shared this pattern with me.
Needle size: 7 or 8
53 yards with #8 needles
Cast on 4 sts.
K2, yo, k to end of row.
Repeat until there are 45 sts on needle.
K2, yo, K2tog; K to last 5 sts: K2tog, K3.
Repeat until there are 8 sts left.
K2, yo, K2tog, K2 tog, K2.
K2, yo, K2tog, K2tog, K1.
K1, K2tog, K2tog, K1.
Cut thread and pull through these 4 sts and tie off.
Update- I've made 8 so far with enough yarn on the cone to make one more, but I am done making this pattern and ready to try a new pattern. I had no idea I could get so many dish cloths from one cone of yarn. I thought I tried this years ago and got 6 from a cone. Then again, I did use a different pattern and made them of different sizes.
