Flying Birds Stitch Washcloth {Crochet Pattern}

Here's another pattern that I've written, this one also meant for my holiday gifting from Christmas 2011.  It's a really simple washcloth that can be embellished by adding a border or you can make it wider or taller in any way you see fit. If I had been smart and gauged it out a little better beforehand, I could have gotten the colors to line up in rows and make it look a little more finished.   Either way, I still think it looks nice and the v stitch gives it a really nice texture.

I like using cotton yarn for my bathroom items, and for this I used Sugar and Cream yarn in this pretty ombre.
