I love the colour in the blanket :)
 
Hi, I just came across your pattern for the dishcloth baby blanket and I have a question to ask of you. I have made several dishcloths using grandma's favorite dishcloth pattern but yours is different. Why are you having to turn on several rows in decreasing the pattern to finish? I have not seen this before using this pattern. Thanks in advance. Denise
 
I've always been bothered that the starting and finishing didn't look the same, so have played around with it many times. Still not perfectly alike top and bottom, but as close as I have come.

I have posted it as a dishcloth as well. Try it I think you will like the results.
 
What do you mean by "turn" in rows 4 & 5?
Thank you.
Holly
 
Turn as if you were at the end of the row.
