This dishcloth design is of an overflowing mug of beer. Whether you’re a fan of beer, root beer, or butterbeer, this design is perfect!
The pattern is a bit more intricate than some of my other designs. For a portion of it, you will need to count and pay attention on every row, rather than every other row.

The design is not symmetrical, so adjustments may be needed by lefty knitters if it matters which way the mug faces and overflows.
