Moderne Log Cabin Dishcloth...in Crochet
Inspired by the wonderful Mason-Dixon Knitting book, this crocheted utility cloth (dishcloth or washcloth) is my version of their baby blanket. The four colors in the cloth are a great way to use up yarn leftovers from other projects. The only issue is that crocheted log cabin blocks tend to go more trapezoidal than rectangle, but severe blocking fixes that. Get it way and pin it like crazy, and you will have a rectangle. If it doesn't turn out perfectly even, no worries. It's a dishcloth!
Would you share stitch details? (I have very recently taken up crochet and this looks like a good novice project...). If not, no worries.
