#40 Plum Inspired Crochet Dishcloth

 

This week we have had 17 dishcloths submitted for the Dishcloth-a-Day Challenge.  We now have enough dishcloths for the month of January and February!  I am so excited!!  Two of the dishcloths are so cute!  One is a container of Popcorn and the other is a Snow Lady! Thank you, thank you, to all those who have helped so far.

This dishcloth was designed and submitted by Carol Ballard.  Carol has been a great help with the challenge and has severl dishcloths already in the collection.   To see more of Carol’s designs visit MaggiesCrochet.com or Carol’s Blog: http://www.cobblerscabin.wordpress.com/

    There may be a problem with the number of stitches as 3 of the 4 sides have 7 loops in plum and one edge only has 6.
