How cute are these! I noticed that the pattern calls for double pointed needles, but since the dish cloth is knit flat you could use straight needles or even circulars (used as straight needles). I have some green and white self patterning cotton yarn that I might try for this pattern and see how it looks.

These are adorable and seem easy to knit. I've never worked with charts but it's a simple one, so good to start with. Best thing is, if they come out well I can make more to give as gifts - quick and easy!
