Amour knitted dishcloth

The Year of the Dishcloth is organized by the Kitchen Sink Shop.  

February’s pattern was an Amour dishcloth. It’s knitted upside down so you start with the top of the heart. When the pattern was revealed at the beginning of February, I started it about 15 times but I couldn’t get the first row (the top of the heart) right so I gave up. This week I reached out to the Kitchen Sink Shop for help. This was a tricky one for me and I unravelled many rows many times but ta-da! 

I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn and a 5mm needle.
