I can't just sit and do nothing, even watching a film. At home, if I'm watching TV I'm knitting, and it's the same at the pictures. You just have to pick your project. Anything other than tube socks or straight garter stitch are tricky in almost complete darkness. Since it was an early showing, all I had time for was to grab a couple of oddments of dishcloth cotton and a circular needle and busk it while I watched.
I was quite surprised by the size of dishcloth I had created once the lights came up, but this large cloth (it's about 10" high and about 11" wide) is going to be great for wiping the kitchen surfaces with ease.
Here is the pattern:
You will need 4mm needles (I used circulars for cinema knitting, as I'm less likely to drop them and lose them under the seat in front!)
You will need about 100 yards (92m) of dishcloth cotton (I used Knitpicks Dishie), all one colour or a mixture as you prefer.
Darning needle to weave in ends.
Tension is not vital for this project (let's face it, it's a cloth!) but I got 18 stitches and 31 rows to 4" (10cm) of garter stitch.
K = knit
KFB = increase 1 by knitting into the front and back of the stitch
K2togtbl = decrease 1 by knitting 2 stitches together through the back loop
Cast on 27 stitches.
Increase row: KFB, K to end of row.
Work Increase row 23 times more, until you have 51 stitches.
Work straight in garter stitch for 28 rows.
Decrease row: K1, K2togtbl, K to end of row.
Work Decrease row 23 times more, until you have 27 stitches.
Cast off knitwise. Weave in ends.
And that's it! You could make this all in one colour, make it striped or however you wish. It makes a great stash buster. I just used the purple until it ran out and then joined in the yellow.
