The Puffy V’s Cotton Dish Cloth features four columns of puffy v-stitches to help you scrub those pots and pans. Not only that, but the puff stitches also provide a thicker fabric, thus making this great for a table mat as well.

And if you line the back with either a single or double crochet swatch or another piece of thick fabric you could even use it as a hot pad on the kitchen table as well.
