    I love crocheting in thread. I enjoy making doilies but they don’t get much use in my house, so it’s great to see this thread dishcloth. Thank you, I’m definitely going to try this.

    Oh, Carol ~~

    Would this pattern not make a lovely baby afghan in a soft baby yarn?!?!? I can just see a baby wrapped up in it. Thanks for sharing.

    There is something so simple and classic about this design that it just calls to you. It caught my eye and i kept coming back to it. I really like this design.
