Crocheted Dishcloth

I haven't crocheted in quite a while.
But, my dishcloths were looking pretty worn out
so I thought it time to make a few more.

 Crocheted dishcloths are my favorite to use.
They scrub the counters clean
and are very absorbent.
Besides that, they are cute  :)
 I like to use
100% cotton yarn
Today's cloth was made 
with variegated blues and white
 Sugar n' Cream by Lily
Right now we are under an Excessive Heat Warning here in Arizona
with temperatures already reaching 111 degrees.
*and it's only the first of June!
Good time to hibernate indoors,
lay low
put on a few good movies 
and crochet.
 It's actually been quite relaxing.
Pattern: Little Starbursts Dishcloth
by Sarah C. of Blooming Patterns
who offers a free tutorial
 I didn't realize this until I finished the dishcloth,
but even though I was using a variegated yarn,
a secondary pattern of an "X" appeared.
Kind of weird!

Love the cloth! I've recently started crocheting again.

I can't get the link "HERE" to work. Can you check the link, or send me the page where the tutorial is?

Thanks!
