I'm teaching my neighbor(who's 10) how to knit and we decided to start with a dishcloth/washcloth. I gave her her first knitting bag, notions, yarn, and needles. And she picked this pattern. I don't think it's a beginner pattern at all--I mean, who would want to start knitting with a TON of seed stitch?--BUT it's what she wanted to do. She's still plugging away on the first 10 rows, but I finished my example for her.
Little Diva has claimed this as her own(and it is a very Diva colorway).
