This dish cloth could be named Brick Rainbow Rainbow Brick



I think it should be called pyscodelic Brick! its so pretty and colourful

It is colorful, it reminds me of growing up in VT and walking thru the forest, seeing the different colors of wild flowers and the different colors of greens on the trees. While walking you come upon a fence line but in stead of a fence it a well placed Stone Wall covered in colorful vines. I think this dishcloth should be call Fanciful Stonewall

Rainbow Brick Road

Hodge-Podge -- that is the name I would give this cute dishcloth. Cant wait to make it! Creatively yours, Beverly

What about "Honeycomb rainbow" ?

I would call it the Rainbow Brick Dishcloth

My first thought was The Wall by Pink Floyd

This is on my to do list and I will be making it soon. Every time I look at this it reminds me of the old cobblestone roads. Therefore I think it should be called The Cobblestone Dish Cloth. It is a beautiful pattern.

Basket weave

Chinese wall

I would Name this pattern "Colourfull brick wall" because that is what it looks like :)

Brick & Mortar - Rainbow With this title format, the pattern itself can be named "Brick & Mortar" with the colorway being open for change, such as "Rainbow" in this chosen colorway. This leaves room for personal changes in color, but the pattern name stays the same.
