Comments:  I borrowed another copy of Barbara Walker's Treasury #1 from the library, and now I intend to exploit it to its fullest! ;)  Here's one of the more basic two-colour patterns.  I've used this one for dishcloths before, although I usually make the 'bricks' in garter stitch so they stand out more.  These yarns are both listed as worsted weight, but the Ultra Alpaca is actually a little thinner - I started this with white mortar and purple bricks, but the Alpaca stitches were stretched too far apart - even more than the white ones are here...
