I love the idea of being able to get stripes without having to change the yarn that fun! I'll be able to brush up on my technique while making something handy and useful. Wow! It looks like the most difficult part may be choosing the color since there are a handful!

Why show the crotchet cloth on top of the other one, thereby making it look like you have the patter for that one, when you haven't? Like Judilee I wanted that pattern not the plain old knit one. Disappointing as the other one, scaled up would make a nice new baby blanket for a boy.

Thanks for all the great patterns, I have no problems with downloading the e books but if I save one of tour patterns, how do I get the instructions when I am ready to print it?

Hi Judilee, Unfortunately we only have the pattern for the one dishcloth. -Editors of FaveCrafts

Where's the crochet pattern for the other dishcloth? I love it!

Great practice for a beginner!
