Designer Dorothy Ballard wrote: “I’ve been crocheting since I was in elementary school. I have issues sitting still, so I’m known for knitting or crocheting at my kids’ hockey and soccer games and practices, during meetings, while watching TV… I’ve even crocheted while watching movies in the theatre.  I adapted the knitted log cabin pattern to crochet for this dishcloth. I like it because I can do the entire pattern with only 2 yarn ends – beginning and end.”
Thank you Dorothy for joining the Dishcloth-A-Day Challenge!
