Ballband Dishcloth

This pattern has been recovered from my Purlingsprite blog, at this link

An oldie pattern that I had buried. I did it about 4 years ago and in changing websites it got lost in the shuffle. I hope you enjoy it! I did mine on a fine gauge knitting loom, the adult fine gauge hat loom by Decor Accents, however, if you have any other fine gauge loom with at least 45 pegs, you it should work just dandy.
