Rachel from HGTV kindly supplied me with the middle picture of her dish cloth and pointed out the obvious difference to me and why it was so.
It's quite simply that I am a righty and she is a lefty, so the pattern turns in the opposite direction. How about that? I found it quite interesting. How's this one though, Rachel would drive on the right hand side of the road, whilst I drive on the left hand side of the road. US versus AU.

To make a square shaped cloth, crochet as many rows high as you started with the foundation chain, ie: 30 chain to start, 30 rows high.
Use any ply yarn with suitable sized hook.
Gauge not important. 50 gm ball of yarn sufficient.
US abbreviations used.
Stitch count is, chain a multiple of 2 ch, plus 1, plus 2 for the foundation row.
I began with 30 ch, plus 1 ch, plus 2 ch, for the foundation row.
Foundation row (rs): work 2 sc in the 3rd ch from the hook, *skip next ch, work 2 sc in next ch* repeat from * to * to end working 1 sc in last ch and turn
Row 1: Ch 2, *skip next st, work 2 sc in next st, * repeat to end, work 1 sc in second ch at the end and turn
Repeat row 1 for every row worked.
Below is the cloth with a simple sc border around it.

I recorded little Rev in action for all to see how happy he makes me and how funny he is.
Rev was the last of 5 puppies to be born, he was the runt of the litter and it was obvious he had problems from the beginning. He was quite cold for the first 24 hours of his beginning. He struggled to feed, I weighed him 3 times a day to ensure he was gaining weight. When he began to walk, he walked backwards, this is why I named him Rev, Rev being short for reverse. I took him to the vet and it was obvious he was starved of some oxygen at birth. But he began to improve and he walked forward. It was not until he was seperated from his mother that we realised he is deaf. His sense of smell is incredible though. I have many visual stimulants and I am teaching him sign language, just simple hand movements for now. I am assuming I will need 2 people to teach him to sit, but I will wait until he is a little older and is used to the simple sign language I am teaching him now.
