I still don't care for this, although I do like the border! I'm not reposting the pattern again as I made changes to that original post. If you want the pattern now, I suggest just downloading the pdf file. It includes the short row version and the speedy crocheted ties. Also, at the end of the pattern, I've included instructions on knitting a cloth, if you prefer.
I still contend that they can't all be winners!
