This week’s dishcloth features the diagonal moss stripe. This is a traveling stitch pattern with a 14-row repeat, so it does require a little more focus than my previous dishcloths, but the results are worth it. I previously used this stitch pattern for the Diagonal Moss Stripe Square for the Anthology Blanket.
