By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 5 Comments
Handmade dishcloths are perfect for customizing to fit your own kitchen style, but not only that, they last longer and are thicker than any you can buy in the store. Using a good cotton yarn, this dishcloth can be made with two colors like I did, or you could even work it in three colors. Get creative! Watery Ripples Dishcloth

    I too think I will give it a try to learn how to do a ripple pattern before attempting a large afghan. I have made several dishcloths using the Tunisian afghan stitch.
