Year of dishcloths

Over on the Dishcloth Mania group on Ravelry we are doing a themed one-a-month dishcloth KAL and very appropriately, looking out of the window, January's theme was snow with the suggested patterns being a couple with snowmen on and this Snowflake pattern that I decided to make

I wanted it a bit squarer than the original so did an extra 4 rows of stocking stitch before and after the snowflake and I decided to make it in cream rather than pure white for practical reasons.
It was the first time in ages that I have followed a written out pattern for knits and purls (rather than a chart) and making it late at night, I now remember why I prefer charts ......strategically placed bar of soap in the picture? no surely not!
