Knitting 101: Dishcloth Pattern

For those of you who have been through the whole tutorial: CONGRATULATIONS! You made it! Below you will find the full pattern for the dishcloth you have been working on so you can make it over and over again.

For EVERYONE: The cloth pictured is using Sugar and Cream Summerfield Ombre. I have only been able to find this in the big 14 oz cone. While it is a beautiful color, you will not need NEARLY that whole cone of yarn.
