Since finishing the Square-mesh Netting class I have been busy creating the patterns for the Circular Netting class. Today I took the time to photograph the three circular net dishcloths I've made.

You may be wondering, "Why have patterns for net dishcloths in the circular netting class?" There are several reasons:
- Everyone can use a dishcloth, even if just to wipe a table, counter, or stove-top.
- They are made using a thick cotton yarn. The yarn is easier to work with than thin crochet thread to learn the basics of circular netting. You can see what you are doing.
- They are fairly quick to make, especially when compared to a doily.
- It's easy to rinse them out. The dirt does not get stuck in the fibers as easily.
- They dry quickly, even in humid climates.
- The knots in the netting act as tiny scrub brushes.
- If a thread breaks, the entire dishcloth does not unravel. The knots that create the netting will keep the break from spreading.
