Note: Keep your sc's in the body of the cloth a bit tight or you will end up with holes in your cloth, but keep your dc's even. Hope you enjoy the pattern!

Update: I laundered the cloth for the first time and I have to say it went through with cotton towels and came out looking just like it did when I first made it. I am VERY pleased with that and knowing that the yarn was a good choice.
