A Pattern: Matinee Dishcloth

I began my yarn buying moritorium on March 7th, and this was on the needles, so it doesn't really count as my finished used yarn projects. Look! I have about half a ball left, which can go into the used yarn stash. (According to my rules, any partial ball I have on hand is fair game.)
Here's the pattern:

Needles: size 7

Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream by Lily

Note: This is a smallish cloth, since the pattern is very loose. It really needs the seed stitch border to keep the bottom from scalloping too much. I also used slip stitches along the sides, which also helps.
Slip all stitches as if to purl
CO 37 stitches.
Border: Sl1, (K1, P1) to end. Repeat for four rows.
Begin pattern rows:
Row 1. Sl, K2, (K2tog, K1, YO, K1, YO, K1, P2tbl, K1), rep to last two stitches, K2
Row 2. Sl1, K1, P to last two stitches, K2.
Repeat these two rows 19 times (20 pattern repeats)
Repeat border, Bind off.

That cloth looks interesting. I think I'll have to knit one up this weekend. The big question is what color do I use.

By the way I am broke and in debt, disabled and addicted to yarn. Yeah, it's a struggle. Eat or Knit???
