10 Day Dishcloth Countdown! Day 9 ~ Lace Cable Knitted Dishcloth

This is a really nice lacy cable dishcloth by Diane of Idaho. She offers the free pattern and picture on her website called Russet Lodge Custom Knits. I really like this one, as it is a bit more "elegant" than your typical dishcloth. Cables look more complex than they are, so if you haven't tried them before, this might be a good beginning cable project.
