I designed a similar dish cloth using single crochet and the berry stitch. I made one for my daughter and another for my husband to use in the shower and they both love their washcloths so much that they each want another! I enjoy using my afghan stitch pattern book to design dish/wash cloths! Not only am I learning new stitches, I’m making something useful!
