FO: Garterlac Dishcloth
Another dishcloth...complete! This was my first ever entrelac pattern, and I had a ball! It's so similar to putting together a jigsaw puzzle...probably why I liked it so much.

Here is the link for the free pattern.

I used Sugar 'n Cream, "Playtime" colorway.

I LOVE this pattern! I have had it bookmarked on Ravelry forever, but I'm too chicken to try it- but yours makes me want to. Was it really hard? Did it take much longer than a regular dishcloth?
I love the colours!

I love the colours!

The instructions included with this pattern are spot-on. It is a great way to learn entrelac -- so easy!!!!! If you can pick up stitches, you can do this pattern. Even if you can't, it's still easy to learn.

What a nice idea, for learning that stitch. I may be brave enough to give it a go.
Love you color choices, they rock.

*Putting on sun glasses and going to take a second look.* Wow, that is bright, cheerful and happy looking. Great job on your first ever entrelac. I wish I had the nerve to try that, but for now I am happy with my sock knitting ... for now!

I tried that exact pattern in almost an identical yarn a while ago - I LOVE the look of it but just couldn't follow through for some reason. Too much turning back and forth. It looks great though!!
