I really like this pattern. But, I had a terrible time trying to read the pattern. Whoever typed the pattern does not understand sentence structure. It is obvious no proofreading was done; the word "first" was typed "fi rst", overuse of periods, the word "off." was typed "off .", overuse of parenthesis, sentences were jumbled, all this and more was found throughout the pattern. I am not a teacher, or any kind of instructor. I never complain about grammar issues, but I think Lily needs to know there is a problem.

I like this project better as I feel it is more useful and something I would take the time to accomplish. Thanks for sharing. Make great Christmas gifts.

Lovely, whimsical pattern. Colors are vibrant and it will match my filet crochet kitchen curtain.

I like butterfly anything, so the butterfly dishcloths are the pattern I'd pick hands down!

I like both of them but think the butterfly would be nicer to look at. thanks for putting up different ideas for everyone.

Spring, beauty. That is what these butterflies remind me of. It would make a beautiful addition to any kitchen.

butterfly one....definately (did I spell that right?) the butterfly one. Though I think the starfish one would actually work better as a dishcloth.

I like the butterfly one better.

I like both the butterfly and starfish patterns. As for making them for someone I'd have to go with the butterfly. Most people would prefer butterflys as you can easily match the colors in a person's kitchen or use that persons favorite colors.

These are so unusual. I will probably make them both but my favorite is the butterflies.

I love butterflies in any form!

I like this one better than the Starfish one, but will probably make the Starfish one for my ocean themed bathroom. Butterflies are always number one though.

Like every one here,I love butterflies and even have butterflies on my business card so yes definately butterflies

I love Butterflies so must pick that one.

I am a butterfly person!! I like starfish, but anytime I must choose between butterflies and any of God's other birds,fish, or other wildlife, I'll take butterflies, hands down!!!

butterfly dish cloth, because they are pretty

These are very pretty. I doubt I will use them for Washcloth's though, because they are too pretty, great for small, heavy vases, etc. One odd thing though, me being me, almost every first has a split in the middle. :) Had to correct every one.

Oh, and also to fix the fi rst's easily, if you have Word just go to the replace tab on the right and enter the fi rst in the first box and first in the second box and click replace all. Much faster than the one by one I did the first time. Do I have enough firsts in this reply? he he.
