Fab Hubby said I should call this one "Tuna Net" because it looks like a fish net floating on the water. (He also liked the unblocked version better. Something about the bumps being "grippy". You be the judge.)

Floating Triangles is a square dishcloth knitted flat in two colors. It uses slipped stitches and increases and decreases to create a net of triangles on the right side of the cloth.
Yarn: You will need approximately 40 yards of a worsted-weight cotton in the main color and approximately 15 yards of a worsted-weight cotton in a contrasting color for best results. (Pictured: Lily Sugar 'n Cream in Light Blue – worsted, 1 skein / 70g / 120 yards, 100% cotton; Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton in Antique Gold – aran, 1 skein / 100g / 180 yards, 100% cotton)

Sizing: Finished dishcloth measures approximately 6” by 6”. The pattern is worked over a multiple of 8 stitches + 1; to change the finished size, cast on more or fewer stitches than called for in multiples of 8.
