Knitting: Shaker Dish Cloths/Coasters

One of my favorite knitting projects is dishcloths/wash cloths.  Everyone can use them.  They are great for wiping up spills, dusting, washing faces, etc.

When I saw this pattern by Very Pink Knits I broke down and purchased it. (Normally I just knit from free patterns.)    I have been following the pattern as written and have made two so far.

There are directions for dishcloths and for coasters.  Since we have only two cork coasters, I decided to make coasters.

The first coaster was made with  US size 6 needles.  It was way larger than coaster size, but perfect for a small wipe-up cloth.  Next I used US size 5 needles (and the same yarn), which are what the pattern actually calls for.  This also was too large for a coaster, but fine for a smaller wipe-up cloth.

Next I will use US size 4 needles and see what I get.  If that does not work, I will decrease the number of stitches that I cast on.
