    This is my favorite stitch to make dishcloths for gifts. Everyone loves them and they look especially good with a variegated yarn. I got it from a free pattern website and the girl who shared it called it the Darryl Waltrup (not sure of spelling) dishcloth because the initials for Double Woven are the same and I guess she must be a race fan. Anyway, this is a great and easy pattern for dishcloths that work well and impress the person who receives it. Don’t you just love when people are impressed and you know how easy it was? 🙂

    Loved your Double Woven stitch tutorial.
    I have just bought some beautiful variegated chunky yarn and have adapted your Double Woven stitch by doing K1,P1 across the second and fourth rows instead of just a pearl row, thus developing a lovely texture that will be just right for my cardigan that I am about to knit. I have called it the MOSS and BAR Stitch.
    It’s probably been done somewhere before but, if not, I will claim it as my own! LOL
