Jack-o-Lantern: Dishcloth

Thinking about the fall season, and checking out tons of pumpkins at work, I thought of this pattern. I always do at least one pumpkin with the classic face. Let me tell you, this version was way cleaner than using the normal pumpkin. And it will never rot! Genius!

  1. Very cute! I'm going to make this for a little lady I know who'e in a retirement home. Maybe it will give her a little smile when she washes her face - she'd never use it for washing dishes! Thanks for the pattern.
