I love it when the total number of stitches is at the end of each round or row. That is most helpful to me. I do not consider myself a pro and have been trying to crochet for about 40 years.

As I sit here crocheting this pattern, I do realize that something is off because as mentioned below, the pattern does not create a 'square', as it should. I could work on tweaking it to get it to square off, however this messes up the pattern of where the holes should fall. I think I'll try a different pattern.

The round two instructiions were a bit confusing the way they were written but after I figured it out it was way easy and turned out good.

Love this pattern. Thank you so much for sharing. I only have 1 issue. With my first attempt with this pattern I finished with a triangle shape. The dishcloth looked exactly like one you have displayed only it came out triangular. I will try to post a picture of it. It's actually interesting and pretty. I don't know where I went wrong as of yet but I know I will definitely make another one and maybe I'll be able to pinpoint what actually happened. Then I can make more of both shapes! ;-) !

@ crochet mom: Hi! Sorry you are having trouble with our patterns. There should be no downloading to do with this pattern, as the project instructions are posted in full. If you would like to print the pattern, click the "print" button near the title. This should print the full pattern with the picture included. Hope this helps! -- FaveCrafts Editors

I like this pattern and several of the others but I do have a problem. I'm not as literate as some on the computer and have trouble downloading. Sometimse I can't get the pictures and that makes it hard to work some without the illistrations
