Candy Cane Dishcloths - Add some Christmas cheer to your chores, with my Candy Cane Dishcloths - Christmas Cal

Hello friends.  It's craft along time again and this week I would like to share with you my pattern for these festive Candy Cane Dishcloths.  I have also added 2 bonus patterns for you to enjoy.  No one likes to do the dishes, especially after eating a big Christmas lunch.  These cloths will make wash up time less of a chore and put a smile on your face while you tackle that huge pile of dishes.  Dishcloths and washcloths also make great last minute gifts.  Each cloth only takes a matter of minutes to make and if you add one of my festive labels, you will have gifts for everyone in no time at all.
