Cleaning up cotton!

One of the great things about the stash-buster challenge is meeting new bloggers and finding inspiring patterns and projects.

Tammy and Astri have been dishing up delightful dishcloths...so for a friend's birthday I followed Astris pattern


It was easy to hook and I experimented with a different edging from a book I had for Christmas Granny Square Crochet.


As she felt how soft it was, I told my friend she should use it  - as I could always make another when it wore out..


...she phoned to tell me she has put it to good use and it works!

It sinks 29g of cotton yarn!

There will certainly be more cloths in the pipeline!

I love the fact that you've made an integral loop for hanging it up
