  1. Hi Elaine, Thank you for your comment 🙂 I’m happy you enjoyed the pattern and liked the different sizing options. Good luck at your craft shows 🙂 Rhondda

  2. I just finished making this dishcloth pattern in bright lime green. I followed the 9-inch pattern instructions. My craft show customers like some larger dishcloths 9-12 inches. I am replacing my inventory since I have sold most of my larger cloths. I was very pleased to see this dishcloth pattern in 3 different sizes because I like the flexibility it offers to the crocheter. I love the V-stitch. It is very easy to do and seems to be a very popular stitch for dishcloths. Thanks for a great pattern.
