Thank you again.
IMHO, casting on 45 st makes a TOO HUGE dishcloth. More yarn, more work,
for what??? A dishcloth that's overly large! eeks!

Casting on 39st keeps the pattern 'true'. It's exactly one 'brick' narrower. Perfect.

No need for ANY edge stitches. That'll just mess up the continuity of the design, and you'll be back at square one: an unnecessarily large dishcloth.

Save time and money....cast on 39st, work the pattern repeats up until you think it's just about square. Remember to allow for those last 3 rows of contrast color when deciding to call it quits.
