Not everybody knits or crochets....everytime I open my e-mail, all I ever see are knitting and crochet patterns. What about the people that sew? How about some "cute" patterns for dishcloths for people that SEW???

Can you explain to me what you mean by WS and explain again about putting both sides together - do I do both the exact same including border? Thank you. Maxine

Crochet hook size 4.00 mm is a G-6, however a 4.50 mm is a 7 and has no letter it is between a G-6 and a H-8. Remember, you can use any hook that gives you the proper gauge however, gauge would not be critical with this project. Hope this helps!

I have no idea what the numbered hooks relate to - My hooks only have letters. What is the correlating hook (lettered) for 6 and 7? Thanks so much!
