Tiny Daisies Washcloth Pattern

I couldn't wait. I'm no good at making scarves - they take too long! I wanted to start and finish something in the same day, and I am currently obsessed with the Tiny Daisy stitch, so I whipped this up.

Tiny Daisies Washcloth Pattern
This pattern is for a washcloth/dishcloth/facecloth in 100% cotton. It uses the Tiny Daisy stitch, which I found in the Vogue Knitting Stitch a Day Calendar. My finished cloth is about 7.5 inches squared.

Bernat 100% cotton
4.5mm knitting needles
Yarn needle

Explanation of Tiny Daisy stitch:
Worked over multiple of 4 stitches plus 1; over 4 rows.
Daisy Stitch: P3tog [leave on needle], yo, P3tog again and drop from needle

Cast on 37
R1: Knit
R2: K1, *Daisy st, k1; repat from * to end
R3: Knit
R4: K1, p1, *K1, Daisy st; rep from *; end k1, p1, k1
Repeat these four rows until piece makes a square
Finish off, weave in ends - done!

Note: I make no claims to this beautiful stitch, it's from Vogue. I just wanted to share what I did. Hope you enjoy!
