Free Pattern! Carousel Horse Dishcloth

As promised, here's the pattern in time for those end of season fairs and closing out the amusement parks.

Carousel Horse Dishcloth

The rows below are just for the image center. On my sample, I worked a crochet edging in a complimentary varigated after the center portion was done. Another option would be to work a seed stitch or garter stitch border to let the square lay flat. Those can be done by adding rows at the start and end of the pattern and adding a few stitches to both ends of each row.

The dischcloth was done on size 7 needles out of Sugar and Cream kitchen cotton. I could also see this motif worked on the front of a child's sweater or as a square in an afghan. Get creative with it!

*edit: fixed missing stitches in line 5, I'll double check everything tonight again, hopefully this is the only fix.

*Modification: Thank you for your patience, there was a miscount for the cast on and in row 5 that I've finally found and fixed, Both changes are bolded above. I finally went back and recounted every row, and hopefully there aren't any more errors. I'm new at this stuff, you'd think I'd be able to count with that whole math minor in college thing, but it's definitely a learning experience, right?

I tried this pattern, however, there are only instructions for 41 stitches on line 5 - this is a CO of 46 stitches.

It's really nice of you to share this, but may I recommend you add a copyright to it if it's your design.

I did somemore checking on your pattern and see that some lines have 46 stitches and some have 47 stitches. I am a new kniter and this confuses me a little. I really want to make this cloth but am not sure how to adjust it.
