I don't like to use patterns too often because nothing I make turns out the way it says on the pattern plus you're not really suppose to change the pattern and some of the stitches are hard to make so I just use them to learn how to make it and then I try it my way. With the washcloth it works. I like how mine turned out, its just not square which is fine with me. I didn't use cotton, its wool but it works in the bathtub just fine. I'm still learning though, started in April 2012.

Well it is nice to meet a kindred spirit! Dishcloths are the only thing I will ever make cause they don't have to be perfect! I'm left handed and just learned how to crochet last year. I kind of made my own pattern and it works for me. I have actually made some that did turn out square - most including one I just did in a different pattern are "freeform" as I like to call them.

I'm excited to start crocheting this! I love crocheted dishcloths, then on to placemats!

@Crafter 2216202: Not only are you correct about using any old yarn, acrylic yarn will grab debris from the dishwater and won't rinse out under the tap.

You can NOT use any old yarn. I made one similar to this for myself and Christmas gifts. If you don't use a cotton yarn they will not absorb the water for wiping down the counter and stove.

@emetz 8140337, To print, follow the link that says "click here for crochet pattern." A new page should open up, taking you to the original designer's site. From here, you can highlight the text, then right-click on it. You'll get a window that gives you the option to "copy." Do that, and then paste the text into a word document. You should be able print that document that way. --Editor of AllFreeCrochet

I did that also. You just don't get the picture but at least you get the ptern.
