My oldest daughter LOVES Halloween so Im always looking for unique gift items for her. She is going to absolutely love this project, even if it is a dishcloth. Ill just tell her its a different kind of doily, and she can take it to work to set her candy dish on. Not sure how easy this pattern will be as there arent any photos. Im going back to the source website to see if I can find more information.
