Free knitting pattern for Shark Wash or Dish Cloth

Shark Wash Cloth or Afghan Block

Spülirätsel Hai by Mamafri can be used as a cloth or motif in other projects. The pattern is only in German but since it is all knit and purl except for the bobble eye, you should be able to figure it out. I believe the L means Knit and R means Purl.

meTerry is a knitting late-bloomer, learning to knit as an adult from Internet tutorials, because she wanted a craft that was useful, fun, and portable. Knitting hats for cancer patients inspired her to design her own patterns—available for free at her blog, Terry met her husband Ken at a science fiction convention and moved to the Kansas City area to be with him more than 30 years ago. Terry supports her yarn stash by creating websites and other digital media. Terry firmly believes in Knitting in Public—it's a great conversation starter!
