Here is my pattern for the April Granny-Spiration Challenge as started by EyeLoveKnots.
I used a cotton yarn, and thus am using mine as a coaster for my desk. But in an acrylic yarn you could use this as a 5″ afghan square. I bet it would look great in a colorful afghan.
This pattern is actually a short version of the scrubby dishcloth on CNC, my other website. So you can make a nice set for your kitchen if you like.
