This forms one wedge.  Knit either five or six more, depending on your yarn, until the cloth can be formed into a circle.  You can either seam the two edges or do the garter stitch kitchener join.  This is simply kitchener stitch, with the back needle worked the same as the front needle.  You can use kitchener with both cast ons; I'm experimenting to see which works best.

You can make this cloth smaller by casting on less stitches, but no less than 15.
