Notre Dame "Fightin' Irish" Dishcloth Pattern

“The university is where the church does its thinking.” (Former ND president Father Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C.)

Notre Dame Fightin' Irish Dishcloth Pattern

(Please don't look too closely at the sample I knit; it has a boo-boo in it. The mistake is not in the pattern, however.)

I used Lion Brand Cotton in Sunshine and Navy, but any blue and gold cotton will do.
Size 7 needles.

The view from the pressbox at yesterday's commencement at Notre Dame. Obama's speech was impressive. So was ND president Father Jenkins' and all the ND students I talked to. And it was cool to get a White House press pool pass. My coverage of the event can be found here.

Thanks for posting this! I converted it to an intarsia pattern for a baby sweater. I gave to a co-worker who is a huge ND fan and sure enough, his son was born on Thursday and wore this for the game on Saturday!
