I love the colors on this dishcloth! It's soft tones and its intricate pattern makes this dishcloth look delicate. Definitely my next crochet project!

This is such a nice dish cloth. I am going on vacation next week, and I am looking for some easy patterns that I can work on in the car. I think this dish cloth will be perfect! I can whip up a bunch, quickly, which is just what I am looking for.
