Garterlac dishcloth!

Last night, through a roundabout way I found Dave's blog with this dishcloth pattern. I've tried entrelac several times and failed miserable. I've even tried a garter stitch dishcloth several weeks ago, but got confused in the middle of a row and all went horrible wonky. So I gave up. I was always interested in entrelac, but did not like how the wrong side looked. With the garter stitch both sides are nice looking. I saw a baby blanket with "garterlac" on another blog, can't remember which one it was. It was made with Noro Silk Garden and I wanted to make one too. So until last night, I didn't get it, but I'm no longer an entrelac virgin!
These dishcloth are 7" x 7" but you can make them whatever size you want.
Thank you Dave!

I've never tried entrelac before so thanks for the link, must give these a go!
And I am already thinking way ahead of myself - Hmmm....baby blanket?

What a great way to test out entrlac. I have some leftovers of dishcloth cotton from the Ball band washcloth and will try this before I make my Noro Silk garden scarf!

I just finished one of these yesterday. Aren't they fun! I love your orange/yellow one. Do you remember what the color is called?
