I just realized I'm running low on both dishcloths and washcloths, and have a ton of worsted acrylic. I usually see these types of pattern in cotton - can I use acrylic as well? Do they dry as well as cotton after use?

No, acrylic isn't a good replacement for cotton in dishcloths or washcloths. Acrylic yarn is plastic, so it doesn't absorb water well at all. My mom made some dishcloths in acrylic and ended up throwing them out -- useless. I made some cotton replacements for her and she's very happy with them.
