So I know that a lot of y'all were knitting these a while back but it took me ages to get the darn book. This here is my first one Smiley

The pattern is from a book called Mason Dixon Knitting. I checked it out from the library and ended up buying the book. There are quite a few fun projects. If you can't get the book, there are some similar patterns to be found on http://www.jimsyldesign.com/~dishbout/kpatterns/knitting2.html Look at the one called TEXTURED SLIP STITCH; it is very similar if not the same. I used a couple of different colors of Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton. The nice thing is that the dishcloths are quick to knit and the yarn is pretty affordable.

The exact same pattern is reputed to be on a ball band of a100% cotton yarns - which is why it is called the Ball Band Cloth in some places.

It's a very common brand of 100% cotton yarn - Peaches 'n Cream for example - but I do not know which one for sure, having never looked for it.

Yep - it's on the ball band of every skein of Peaches N Creme.  The Mason-Dixon twist is to use two colors of Color B and do the last two or three stripes in another color or in a solid if you're using an ombre.
