Oh, you must go visit Criminy Jickets for the next installment of dishcloth mania! There are links to some really different dishcloths--I like the star-shaped one in variegated yarn. Love that.
I also think it is very clever of him to adapt the Lizard Ridge pattern to a washcloth--how cool is that! I'm loving the creative license.....!
I am beginning to dislike dishcloth patterns that are not mostly garter stitch. Garter stitch creates a fabric that is so thick and luxurious, it's perfect for these small cloths.... I think it also has to do with what yarn you use, I am really hooked on Sugar 'n Cream cottons, they shrink up nicely, get softer with each wash, and are thick, thick, thick! (I must remind you, reader, that I don't use these as dishcloths, but as luxurious washcloths in the shower.) Sigh....
Here's what I did with my Ty-Dye washcloth I had started:
It is too flimsy of a cotton weight for me to like a washcloth out of it, so will gladly put it to a better use of some kind :) It's a little pricey for washcloths, anyway!!(But does make beautiful garments......what a silky drape.)
Oh, check out what Miss Happy Camper has been up to: a festive fish bag! This is really really cute. Want to, need to make one :)
I am hooked on small projects, so I am feeling the need to get another washcloth going :)
