Just recently my daughter Allison starting working with us full time. She is helping us update and put a new fresh look on everything. Allison has also become very good at designing crochet patterns! She is currently working on baby and toddler jumpers. When this Pineapple Dishcloth needed a border, Allison designed the one you see in the picture.
Follow me onto dishcloth #78 and the rest of the story…
