Both of these patterns are available for free from Cathy of Wishing I was Knitting at the Lake. Cathy has some fantastic patterns! I found the dishcloth pattern by mistake. I was actually looking at Cathy's baby sweater patterns when I came across the dishcloth which led me to the towel pattern.
The links: Bridal Shower Lace Cloth
I used less than 2 skeins of Lily's Sugar & Cream cotton yarn and size 7 needles. Instead of CO 36 sts. for the dishcloth, I CO 40 sts, because I like a bigger dishcloth, so my border has 5 sts. on either side instead of 3. I adjusted the pattern accordingly.
So, after you're done reading this post, zip on over to Cathy's Wish I Was Knitting at the Lake blog and check it out. You won't be disappointed. There's really nice baby sweater and baby blanket patterns.
