Dish cloths/wash cloths seemed like a simple and usable way to practice, so I've tried several patterns. The first few had some pattern issues. Actually, they had some issues with my ability to follow the pattern.
Eventually I struck on this diagonal pattern that is so easy to do, even I can't mess it up (at least not much).
My favorite design so far is this lattice pattern. It makes a thicker, textured cloth that is better for scrubbing.
The original pattern includes a crocheted picot edge that gives the cloths a fancier look, but this old dog can only handle one new trick at a time.
