Oh what a great dishcloth, too pretty to use to dry dishes, I love the 3D effect. What color cotton did you use, its so bright and sunny?

I just love that dishcloth...like others say, you almost cannot use it for a dishcloth...more of a small doily. Thank you for the pattern...Carolyn

Hi, I just did the sunshine dishcloth on Saturday - in a yellow and white variegated. It's a lovely pattern, thanks for sharing it.

I plan on sending it to my mother. I think it would be a nice mat for under a vase if she didn't want to use it as a dishcloth.

Love the sunray. However, as I work the rounds. Row 7 is not really clear to me....I get what it is to do however, not certain about only having 4 loops and 16 chains.

Hi, The Sunshine dishcloth is just beautiful. I'm like the others it's really to pretty to use. I'm going to have to make one like that and one like the other one you have on ther. I like both of them.
