This is a fun pattern to knit in the round. I am not that good on double pointed needles so maybe this would be good practice! I probably would use white instead of the tangerine, or maybe use a self patterning yarn and forget about changing colors, just use it for the whole dish cloth.

i agree gelybean - pattern calls for 4 needles, then proceeds to give directions for knitting on 2 and sewing up seam LOL. Knitting it in the round would require all knit rounds

I think the directions for the Posy dishcloth are incorrect, the purl rows should actually be knit
