Grandmother's Favorite Knitted Dishcloth

I keep losing the pattern for this knitted dishcloth.  I found it again tonight, so I'm posting it so I'll have it to refer to whenever I want.  I've made dozens of these and you'd think I'd remember the pattern.  It is really easy to make and they make great gifts.

Materials: Sugar and Cream yarn; Size 6 or 7 needles (US) 
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1: Knit 4
Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row.
Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle.  (more or less stitches here will vary your overall size)
Row 3: Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row.
Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches on the needle.
You can now either bind off or do a round of single crochet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it.
