This dishcloth was created using Lily Sugar’n Cream Twist Yarn for the background. I love the way it turned out – very country looking. Here is some information on the yarn:
- Fantastic twisted shades for a multi-colored effect without the hassle
- Natural, soft and absorbent cotton
- Worsted weight—the most popular weight
- Ideal for knit & crochet and craft projects
