This is a great pattern. I have made several and they are striking. Reversing the colors to make a somewhat matching pair is really cool. thanks, Monica. Annaknits from Ohio

It's a great pattern. I have also modified it and knitted it in the round resulting in a German-style wash cloth (Waschlappen).
