  1. Hate popcorns, but really like this pattern. I have about 1 oz cotton here, think I will start this today. Thanks for this pattern.

  2. Hi, I am a beginner crocheter and am working on Kelsey's Dishcloth. Love the pattern, but wondering if there have been any corrections to it? I was going along fine until I got to row 5' the my vertical spaces started to go out of alignment. I ripped row 4 and 5 out and re-did, but nothing changed. I am getting ready to start over, but thought I'd ask the question, just in case.
