This dishcloth pattern has been knit for decades by the women in my family and is named after my grandmother and great-aunt, both of whom have made more of these practical, easy dishcloths than I can recall. Knit flat on the bias, the pattern blends function with decoration in the yarn-over border, which hide the increases and decreases with flair. I hope it will find a place in your family as it has in mine!
