Chutes & Ladders DishclothDesigned By Julie A. Bolduc
If you look very carefully, you will see wavy lines, which resemble chutes, and ladders on the rows. This is achieved using the same stitch that is in the Tissue Holder but instead of changing colors and starting each color change at the beginning of each row. This pattern is done so the piece is reversible by actually turning the work. This pattern could be enlarged to make a large afghan.
