Yarn & Patterns = Really Cool Dishcloths !!!

Okay, so I have this strange obsession of collecting dishcloth patterns. Now, they aren't 'normal' dishcloths (you know, granny squares in every possible configuration), no,these are unique and special ones. Back in July, one of my favorite read's, MeegieMoo had made a really cool Skull dishcloth that I fell in love with (Her name is a link to said post with dishcloth-have a peak) and FINALLY, I found the pattern!!! I was very excited and the pattern is free for PERSONAL use (iow-do not print&sell or create the item to sell) So, I'm posting it here. I found it on another blog while looking for knit/crochet/cross stitch Halloween patterns. Check out her Blog-she's a mega knitter too!!! Insanknitty
