#124 Mosaic Plaid Ripple Crochet Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet

Designer Kathleen Stuart wrote:  “The Mosaic Plaid Ripple dishcloth is from a pattern that I had made a baby afghan out of years ago, found in Donna Kooler’s Crocheted Afghans book. It is fun because it is reversible and looks great from either side. The colorwork looks difficult, but it is not. It is done working long double crochet stitches in rows below.”

    I really like your website but this dishcloth looks like it doesn’t come out square. Is it the photo or the pattern? Thanks/
