Did you mean to ask the same question 3 times?

I think if you doubled it they would never dry and get smelly quicker.

Yes, I did mean to ask 3 times because it's directed at 3 different people.

I never thought about the stink factor. Thanks!

I've used 2 strands of Peaches and Cream for crocheted potholders. I'd never want a dishcloth that thick. I'm using two strands for a bathmat but it shouldn't soaking wet with use and will dry fairly quickly. If it wants to get smelly I'll use it for a rug where it will stay dry.

You can do multiple quotes in the same post or just mention names. Example:

@Jan, thanks for asking about the duplicate posts. I tend to ignore such things and generally won't bother trying to figure out what's being asked. I guess I really am Grumpy.

I wasn't aware about the capability of doing multiple quotes in a post. Thank you for letting me know.

Okay, so it sounds like using two strands isn't a good idea. Thanks for your input!

Two strands of worsted weight yarn is like using a bulky yarn. You might like 2 strands of the cotton for some things. Try it out and see how it works. There's nothing quite like actually doing it to get ideas. At first I found working with doubled yarn annoying but after a bit it got easier and it does have it's uses.
