This is a basic cloth in one of my favorite patterns. This is also the start of a dishcloths-to-blankets project I am working on–a series of dishcloths of the same dimensions (same number of cast on stitches) which can be knitted as individual dishcloths or knit in continuous strips of alternating patterns and sewn together to make a blanket. More on this later as I add patterns to the project.
