Thank you, GG. I just think the edges with the yarn carrying could look better! I'm gonna try another one soon.

Very nicely done! I know what you mean about the mess at the edges from carrying the yarn but I can't see it here. It helps to catch the yarn every other row but the line of carried yarn is still going to be there. This slip-stitch pattern is a neat way to do two-color knitting, isn't it?

Thank you salmonmac! I'll try your tip about catching the yarn, I think I understand. Lol. I loved this pattern once I got the hang of it!

Oh what a nice ballband dishcloth! I like that you used a variegated for the "bricks" and a solid for the "mortar"!

Ah, don't feel bad about the edges. Mine turn out sorta wonky, too! I don't worry about it one bit. There's no remedy for it, so why worry?

I think your edges look positively fine!

That turned out great, and I love the colors. I haven't tried that one yet, but I will!

Thanks, Jinx. Not hard once I wrapped my head around it.
