Aunt Gloria's Knitted Dishcloth

This pattern was based on the look of a dishcloth that Aunt Gloria gave me

Cast on 20 sts.

Row 35 [as an odd row]: knit

This completes one wedge. Knit 5 more wedges, then bind off. Cut yarn leaving a long tail. Sew the cast on row to the cast off row carefully so that it matches other rows, and run the yarn through the center stitches and draw tightly. Weave in ends. Ta-Da!
