Same Pattern Different Look, But Why?

I just made my second Tunisian short row dish cloth, pattern link is here, I find them to be one of the best dish cloths to use, so durable.
The 3 below are made from the same pattern, but if you look closely you will see a difference with one of the dish cloths, one difference being the middle one was not made by me, but why is it so different when the exact same pattern was used and they are all face up?

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.

Thank you so much for the site on the tunisian dishcloth. I sat here last night and made 2 of them. It was a lot of fun. I'll have pictures of mine on my site later today.

Thanks Therese, I've had a look at yours and they are great, I think if it were not for the video, I may have never made one myself.

Actually I found it quite comfortable to be riding around on the left hand side of the road when we were in Jamaica. I didn't actually drive but after 1 week it was wierd to be back in the states and on the right.
