#69 Nine-Patch Crochet Dishcloth

Today’s Dishcloth comes to us from Lori Zeller, who wrote:
I have been crocheting for 35+ years. My favorite projects are ‘little things’ that can be completed in a relatively short period of time. I also enjoy anything in thread with a delicate look, but ultimately, anything I can wrap around a crochet hook is fair game for me! I have had many designs published and would like to continue to have many more of my designs published.”

    I can not find dishcloth #68. I see #67 & #69 but #68 is missing. These dishcloths are great.

    I love this 9 patch but where is cloth #68? I can’t seem to find it…

    This turns out pretty but was a little tricky to figure out. If I did it again, I would probably do it a little differently – but it does turn out in the end 🙂 Color choices are adorable!
