10 Day Dishcloth Countdown! Day 1 ~ Grandmother's Favorite

One of the quickest and easiest knitting projects has got to be the knitted dishcloth. I love the way theses perform, wear, and look. I've made dozens and never get tired of them. So today, and for the following nine days, I'll showcase some of my favorite free dishcloth patterns.

Day 1 dishcloth is from Traditional Designs. It's a very easy diagonally knit dishcloth with eyelet border. It's one that I've made several times.
