- I needed to use up some left over #3 thread. This dish/wash cloth was made to honor my grandma who ALWAYS had a crochet hook in her hand to work on her dishcloths.
- When you look closely, you can see that I joined the brown about 12 sts into the row when I ran out of green.
- The green edging came from a fuller left over thread.
- This is a PERFECT way to use up Edging: left over size 3 and 5 threads. Working on the RS, join thread in the middle st on the bottom of the cloth.
