|Crossed Stitch Cloth - Pattern below|
For Crossed Stitch, work with an even number of stitches, plus 1 more on each side for the selvage. This is a two row repeat that is easy to remember. Depending on what you are making, the number of edge stitches can be adjusted to fit your project.
Row 1: Knit 1 (selvage) *Slip 1 with yarn in back, Knit 1, Yarn Over, Pass the Slipped Stitch over both the Knit Stitch and the Yarn Over* Repeat to last stich, Knit 1 (selvage)
Row 2: Purl all stitches
Repeat these two rows for pattern
Yes, there is a video also. Very brief, just showing how to do Row 1 of the pattern since I assume you don't want to watch me purl the second row :0)

You can make the cloth wider by adding more stitches, just be sure you have an even number. The cloth can be made longer by repeating Rows 3 and 4 as many times as you like before finishing. I strive to be error free before posting something to the public, but sometimes that doesn't happen. If you find a mistake, feel free to leave me a comment so I can check it out.
This cloth is my own design. You are free to use the pattern to knit cloths for yourself and friends/family; if you would like to share the pattern with others via your own blog, please link back to me.
