Crocheted easy dishcloth pattern

Yay, my dishcloths did not come out hideous. The photo could use some improvement though. The pink isn't that bright.

It's a deliriously simple pattern. It would have to be considering I made it up and I've made less than 10 projects so far. I used Lily Sugar 'N Cream but any cotton worsted-weight yarn will do. These are a little small and thin for potholders even though the hanging loop makes them look like one. If you want to turn it into a potholder, you can use 2 strands of yarn held together for the main square. Or you could make 2 of the main squares and do the edging through both squares. If you want to make the squares bigger, just increase the chain, which should be an even number plus 1.

If you want to sell the items you create from this pattern, feel free. (But, don't sell the pattern. Who would pay for it anyway?)
