I still have a bedspread she crocheted. She died before I could learn but I did in my early teens. I learned to knit before I learned to crochet. I was an army wife for 30 years and did a lot of travelling, raised two children. I belong to a group that crochets blankets for young mothers. I use some of the motifs from the dishcloth challenge to decorate my blankets. I mostly make things up as I go so I do not have patterns. My favorite is my angel blanket.”

This one may become one of my favorites. I can’t wait to try it.
What a heart warming story and a really pretty dishcloth. It would make a lovely doily. I can’t imagine losing a mother at such a young age. I’m 60 and lost mine this past January. It has been a horrible adjustment that I wouldn’t wish on any child!
I love this pattern but i have made it and its all ripple and doesnt lay flat any idea if i made it again so it doesnt happen again….my stitch number match the pattern
