Your favorite dishcloth pattern?
So I'm making dish clothes... lots of them. I've done a few Grandmothers favorite, and Double Bump... I'm looking for your faves, to give them a shot! I've been through tons of patterns, but wanted input from you all

Right now I'm making a mitered square cloth. You might like to try one. It's really easy.

ArtLady posted photos of mitered square things she's done, which I think included an afghan. They have lots of possibilities for making really interesting pieces. When I was told they're easy I thought, yeah, right, but they really are. Have fun. I'm thinking of interesting ways to use them. You'll probably come up with lots of ideas, I'd love if you shared them.

This is the first (only) dishcloth pattern I have used. Seems to work pretty well.
