This pretty "Scalloped Cherry Dishcloth" is truly a vintage country chic dishcloth. It is not so kitschy but just enough to give you that feeling of taking you back in time to the 1940's. I believe cherry motifs were popular at the time. I would think that one could make at least three of these with just one skein of each color cotton yarn. A very budget friendly project for the weekend!
