I also think the circle cloth pattern is too thick for a dishcloth; I opted to make a cloth for my dish drain. While I was knitting it, it felt really cozy in my lap. On the ravelry page for this pattern there was a link The Tale of the Circle Cloth Blanket
, is down a bit on the page, an interesting read.
I spent some time looking at the projects for the Circle Cloth on ravelry, there were only a handful that were not dishcloths. I keep thinking there must be a really creative way to use this stitch, but haven't figured it out yet
Don't know what was difficult about this stitch for me, maybe if I pick it up later, I'll feel differently.
