Guess I am a few years to late to ask questions...Sorry

am new to this please tell me what the abbreviations mean..sure would love to make these.but sure do need help... Thank Ya..

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.

Great for all skill levels and size makes this one a HIT!

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!

I prefer this pattern. The patterns are virtually identical so it all comes down to which you prefer one color or two.

Prefer the one colour version, I like simple things in my kitchen and I can stick them all in the machine together...... just my personal preference.

Really both look alot alike so I guess it came down to "visual"...like the one color beige better than the two color that "LOOKS" like a granny square...not that I dont like granny squares...just like the one color better....

I like this dishcloth better than the other as it looks a better stitch and more of a conventional dishcloth

I like this pattern the best, it seems more practical for a dishcloth.

I prefer this dishcloth too because it was worked tighter and looks better this way.

I prefer this dishcloth over the other since the pattern is more consistent and a bit tighter. For a dishcloth, a tighter weave is better for purposes of scrubbing or wiping down a counter or dishes.

I'm much more interested in this one because of the solid color. Multicolor yarns always have me rolling my eyes--I'm a professional designer, and simple is always better.

This is the one!

like the flatter structure of this pattern.

I love the 100% cotton crocheted dishcloths. I usually like a smaller size like a 9in square or there abouts. Easy to adjust any pattern. I like the ones that are not too tightly woven. Thanks for the granny square pattern. I

100% cotton yarns work best, because they are absorbent (acrylic and wool aren't). Most purchased dishcloths are cotton or a cotton blend...so these are every bit as washable, dry-able, and sanitary as any dishcloth you would buy in the store. And personally, I find that crocheted dishcloths work better than the woven ones you buy in stores. Hope that answers your questions.

Are these washable and dryable? Are they sanitary? Are there yarns better suited than others? Do they clean dishes as well as regular dishcloths? Just wondering! Thanks!
