Quick question When do you switch to the white yarn? Is it row 3? I didn't see anything about switching colors....am I crazy?

Hi nataliehawksrocks 6931924, the pattern does not seem to say where to switch colors, but it appears that it would be at row three, then rows four and five would be color A, row six would be color B, and so on. I hope this helps! - Laura, editor of AllFreeCrochet

I love the v-stitch, and this pattern is the perfect way to use it. This dish cloth would definitely be the perfect gift any time of the year. I enjoy making dish cloths because they are small and can be made in an evening, or less. What is your favorite thing to make?

I made a few dish cloths but I like how this pattern includes a touch of white in between the colored rows. It gives the dish cloth a spring or summer feel. I like wrapping three dish cloths and tying them with a cord or ribbon. This creates a nice hostess gift.

This is another favorite dishcloth that I like to have my students work up. The designer has written it up so clearly that I can copy and paste without having to make very many edits or changes. All my students both young and old want to produce something that shows off their handiwork. I dont have any Spanish speakers in my classes right now, but its very nice to know I would have something to give them, too.

I live in Florida too so I know the heat that the designer is speaking of on her blog. Its not just in the summer either.its year roundlike today when the North is snow bound we have bright sunshine and 85 degree temps. Light and easy projects like this are perfect to carry with me in my bag.

What a nice practical item to get or to give. This is a great stash busting project. If your yarn is not appropriate for being a dishcloth, make the squares smaller to make coasters. These two tone dishcloths will brighten up any kitchen.

Kudos to the designer for providing the directions in both English and Spanish. This would be a quick and easy pattern to use to make a few "stocking suffers" for this coming Christmas. One can never have too many dishcloths and you can customize the clothes to each recipient. Happy crocheting.

I am making a knitted dishcloth now that looks very similar to these. I had never knitted a dish cloth before so I wanted to give it a try. Am only about 1/3 of the way finished with it as knitting is always slower for me. This looks like a very easy project to do and wish I had seen this pattern first.

This is really quick to make! A person could make a lot of these in a short time. The v-stitches work up fast, creating a mesh type cloth. They would be great for craft tables, gifts, and donations items. The green used for the repeat section in the pattern is difficult to see. The shade used is too close to the colour of the main text. This confused me at first. When I read Repeat section in green, I was thinking of green yarn, not green text, because I couldnt see any green text.
