Pick a Pick Dishcloth Pattern--a Charlotte Original

Here's the third of the three dishcloth patterns (but only the second pattern posted) that I discussed a little bit here.  I call this one "pick a pick", but I'm open to other names, it's just that none have struck my fancy quite yet.

At any rate, here are pictures, followed by the pattern.  Once again, my plan is to leave the pattern up here for the taking for the next little while, and then, when I have the pdf put together with the three patterns for the salutationscrochet etsy shop, I'll take this one down.  So, get the pattern while the getting is good, I guess!
