When changing colors on this one, do you have to cut and restart the yarn or can you carry it up the side without it looking funny?

No...don't cut and restart the yarn. Just carry the yarn up the side. It 's a very nice pattern. One of my favorites. !

I love this pattern! I have a thing for knitting dishcloths. They work up quickly, let me practice all sorts of new stitches and I have something useful and practical at the end of all that practice. I've never knitted in brick stitch before so this may be my next dishcloth project. These have a retro look to me, like from the 50s - super cute.

Yes, since the colors repeat you want to carry your colors up the side as you work the pattern. I'm guessing you know how to wrap the color you're not using around the color in use at the beginning of the row. If not just google it, there are many tutorials online to show you how.
