Diaper Wipes

Yeah, they are kind of fancy for wiping poopy butts, but I'm using up some cotton yarn and trying out some things.

Wipe #1: Nothing too fancy...garter stitch with verigated yarn.

Wipe #2: Kind of a funky ripple things with plain yarn. To make it: CO 29
Row 1: S1 knitwise, k1, k2tog, k4, (k1, yo, k1) double increase, k4, (slip 2 as if to knit, k1, psso) double decrease, k4, (k1, yo, k1) double increase, k4, ssk, k1
Row 2: S1 knitwise, p to last stitch, k1
Repeat rows 1 and 2, CO on an even row.

Hmmmm...when you turn it the way it was knitted, thusly:

This would be just gorgeous as a center panel in a tank top or a short-sleeved summer sweater with the funky zig-zaggy edge at the neckline and bottom hem. Hmmmmmm...

Okay, I lied...cast on edge is on the top. But I definitely like the "W" shape better than the "M" shape. I'm thinking: knit from the top down? Or maybe reverse increases and decreases (yo at each edge, double increase at center, two double decreases between)? Ooo, oo, oo, I feel another wipe coming on!!
