My hairdresser just requested some dishcloths. She likes 8-9 inch ones, but as this one is a Granny, it's easy to stop going around a row or two earlier. Thank you.

I like the size of this one, and the holes seem smaller, which I also like.

They are both great dishcloths but I like this one because it is bigger and looks neater.

I like simple plain colors in the kitchen. In my opinion this granny square is rch in color because it is neutral and plain.

This is my Fave! Size is great Bigger the Better and using other cotton colors turns out beautiful too!

I prefer one color as when I have gifts to do one never knows what another person's color preferences are, and it has been my experience that a 1-color item is always more pleasing when the preference is unknown.

Love the simplicity yet beauty of the single color in the kitchen. It also washes better!
