       Few days ago Morticia Addams told me about her new project and as she knew about the success with the KAL I organized in 2008 with her pattern, she asked me if I want to organize a KAL again this year. I had no doubt, so I asked her to send the pattern. And so she did so now I have the pattern and I'm preparing every thing. She told me that it is a washcloth for Gomez as last year.If you would like to knit along with us again, I can tell you that you should prepare:

neeedles number 3,5 mm - or use what you normally do and what goes with your cotton
Yarn: cotton for washcloths in black, yellow and blue (or brown, or other dark colour)

Day One

Skill level: Easy
Yarn: use what you normally use to make wash- and dishcloths.
Colours: black, yellow, dark red/brown/blue
Other materials: yarn needle
Needle size: E-4 / 3.5 mm
Gauge: is not important in this project

Pattern Notes
The numbers in the () show how many sts on each needle.
Tip to start all rows: purl the first st, pull the yarn kindly, then k across.
I-cord knitting here: *k2, sl sts back to right needle*, rep *-*

Stitches - knit: CO (cast on), BO (bind off), k (knit), p (purl), ppso (pass purl stitch over), rep (repeat), *-* (rep from * to *)

CO50 with black
Rows 1 - 3: k
Row 4: k10, BO12, k across
You have now two groups of sts
Group 10sts: rows 5 - 22: k
Row 23 - above the BO - kfb1, k across (11)
Row 24: k to last st: kfb (12)
Row 25: kfb1, k across (13)
Row 26: k to last st: kfb (14)
Row 27: kfb1, k across (15)

Day Two

Now cut the yarn and k group of 28 sts the same way – with the inc above the BO. You have 2 groups of sts (15+ 33) which you join CO2 between (15+33+2=50)
Rows 28 – 31: k
Row 32: k8, BO8, k4, BO8, k4, BO8, k8
You have now 4 groups of sts (8 – 5 – 5 – 8)
Rows 33 – 46: k 14 rows on each group

Day Three

Row 47: k8, CO8, k5, CO8, k5, CO8, k8 (50)
Rows 48 – 53: k
Row 54: k16, BO18, k16
Group one: rows 55 – 60: k
Row 61: CO4, k across (20)
Row 62: CO4, k across (24)
Row 63: p1, k1, ppso, k across (23)
Rep row 23 until 2 sts back
Then make an about 7 cm / 2,76” long I-cord: *k2, sl back on left needle* (in stead of pushing a double pointed needle).

Day Four

Group two: rows 55 - 60: k
Row 61: k5, BO6, k5
K 8 rows on each group (rows 62 – 69)
Row 70: k5, CO6, k5 (16)
Row 71 – 75: k
Row 76: CO4, k across (20)
Row 77: CO4, k across (24)
Row 78 – and all rows until 2 sts: p1, k1, ppso, k across (23)
Then make an I-cord as above.

Day Five

Well, now you've surely understand what Morticia knitted to Gomez! So now youll get the last pieces:

CO12 with dark brown/red/blue
Rows 1 – 16: k
Row 17 change to yellow: *k1, p1*, rep *-* across
Row 18: p1, k1, ppso, k across (11)
Rop row 18 until 2 sts back

Window – make three
CO8 with yellow
Rows 1 – 14: k

Tower window
CO6 with yellow
Rows 1 – 8: k

Join the door and windows into the holes of your house.
Bend the I-cord and fix on the roofs – that makes a chimney-hanger ;-)

Thank you very much for taking part in this KAL. 
I hope you enjoyed it!

I'd be happy to see your house and add it here in my photo-gallery - if you want too, please, send me a picture to
