#23 Holey Crochet Dishcloth

We are trying to catch up with the one-a-day challenge.  Wendi and I have been crocheting like crazy!  This weekend my husband and I are taking a break.  They have great winter rates at the beach so we are going Friday and coming back on Sunday.  It is supposed to be almost 60 degrees and sunny the whole time.  All I really care about is a hot tub.

Follow me onto dishcloth #24 and the rest of the story…

    Love this pattern. I am actually using it to make a prayer shawl. I have some yarn that has a very busy twist pattern to it. I just couldn’t find a pattern that showed off the style. This one worked perfectly and is really quite easy to make. Thanks so much for all the patterns.
    Keep up the good work.

    Hello – and thanks for doing this dishcloth challenge. It is so fun! I’m catching up on reading about all of them and the lkink in #23 doesnt let me go forward to #24. Maybe your web person can fix that? Thanks……now back to my catching up!

    This pattern is really pretty…. I enjoyed making it – and I love the suggestion of using it for a prayer shawl. I am always looking for new patterns for that!
