Criss Cross Dishcloth

Whew, it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged.  This pattern was written awhile back and I had every intentions on getting it posted.  But instead I carried it in my bag for months, smh.  Again, I like simplicity and this turned out to be a very quick dishcloth to make.

Now let’s get down to business and do some crocheting.  Depending on your speed it should take between 30-60 minutes.  You can knock this out while watching your favorite show.
