The Rays Of Sunshine Collection
Add some sunshine to your kitchen with the Rays Of Sunshine Collection. A collection of patterns perfect to use after you’ve done your big “spring cleaning” in your kitchen. Move over drab winter, bright and colorful spring and summer are coming your way.
The Rays Of Sunshine Collection currently includes a table runner, hand towel, coaster, and the dishcloth featured in this post.
Like all the other patterns in the Rays Of Sunshine Collection, I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran. I used less than one skein to make the dishcloth.
