Mitered Dishcloth with Rose in Pastels

 While travelling, I've been working on a few small projects that are easy to transport. 
This one is my good old standby: the mitered dishcloth.
The pattern can be found in my Etsy shop by clicking here.
For this particular variation, I worked in both loops with a fingering cotton yarn, a 3.5 mm hook, and extra rows due to yarn weight.
Then a picot edge was added.
It's pretty like this, but if you'd like a little extra pizzazz from the garden, a rose is a nice touch.

Start with the rose pattern by clicking here.

Then add leaves like this:
On the back, crochet and connect eight 3ch loops even with the petals with a SLST.

In each loop (SC, HDC, DC, 2ch picot, DC, HDC, SC)
SLST to first leaf, leaving ends for attaching to the dishcloth.
Finish by sewing onto the dishcloth with the ends:

These make the best gifts! 
They can be paired up with a pretty and/or coordinating bottle of dishwashing soap or a dozen roses. πŸ˜‰
The handle makes it easy to hang for drying.

I'm looking forward to returning home at the end of the month and crocheting from dawn til dusk!

Wishing you all a day of dawn til dusk crocheting!
