Additional Materials
MATERIALS NOTE Materials are sufficient to make one each of Dishcloth I and Dishcloth II
GAUGE:
12 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
1. Dishcloth is worked back and forth in rows, changing color at the end of every row.
2. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over.

Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the st.

Fasten off old color.
3. Edging is worked around outside edge of Dishcloth.
