Pattern - Alternate Double V-Stitch Dishcloth

Here is the pattern for the Double V-Stitch Dishcloth pictured in the "Peachy/Green" kitchen set. The directions for the edging only seem complicated. I wrote directions for each side because the top and bottom are different from the sides. The key to an edging is to simply crochet evenly around all sides. If my directions seem complicated just put the stitches in evenly and call it good.
