Gauge isn’t overwhelmingly crucial here as long as you like the fabric, drape and size of your cloth. If you want your cloth to be exactly the same as the one photographed, you’ll work in stitch pattern to a tension that achieves 16 sts for 24 rows to measure 4″.
This is my “go to” stitch pattern for mindless knitting. I love it for everything from washcloths to blankets to garments. Use multiples of 4 to work in stitch pattern with no selvedge.
Cast on 36.
Row 1: *K2, p2, rep from * to end.
Row 2: K1, *p2, k2, rep from * to last 3 sts, p2, k1.
Row 3: *P2, k2, rep from * to end.
Row 4: P1, *k2, p2. Repeat from * to last 3 sts, k2, p1.
Repeat Rows 1-4 until piece measures approximately 7.5″, bind off in pattern, fasten off, weave in all ends securely.
