Yarn: Italgamma Filati Fantasia Carezza, 100% cotton, in white, and Patons BumbleBee Baby Cotton, 100% cotton, in morning glory

Needles: 4 mm / US 6

Gauge: 5 stitches and 10 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Basic Two-needle Hexagon

Source: BW4, p. 17.

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.
