From The Amazing Turnip Girl's Ravelry Page:
just a little scrubbie i made.Most of her project instructions are "I just did this until it looked like this" and her knitting instructions are pretty similar. She works without patterns, and usually without taking notes. However, she decided to make a second one of these, so I gave her a piece of graph paper and told her to mark the purl stitches.
i tried to make it look like river’s diary.
i took the photos in my family’s garden.
The needles she is using are this set that I made her-
Made with 1/4 inch oak dowels, they are just over 6 mm in diameter, or between a size 10 and size 10.5 needle. Either size will work.
The pattern is mostly garter stitch with some purl stitch panels. If you are a beginning knitter, it's an easy, quick project that will help you get more comfortable with purling. The end result is a nicely textured scrubbie. Using cotton yarn, it will be insanely soft, for a more exfoliating scrub- use acrylic.
Worsted weight yarn- the open blocks are knit stitches, the dots are purls.
