Comments: Another example of how to make unusual shapes from garter stitch. Knit a triangle, pick up stitches down the side, knit another triangle, repeat until you have six altogether. My edges are a little more curved than they could be - I suspect I pulled the yarns too tight when carrying them up the side. If it weren't cotton, it could probably be blocked into shape, but given that this will soon become a dish scrubbie, I'm not too bothered.
