Berry Basket Dishcloth Pattern - FreeThis pattern came about because the stitch pattern reminded me of the wood berry baskets we used when I was a kid. But the stitch pattern was part of a child's sweater which I had no interest in making so this is the resulting dishcloth and I'd like to share the pattern with all my cyber friends. I used Lily's Sugar Baby cotton and size 7 needles.
Please send me pictures of your dishcloths.
