I see where u r using two different cotton yarns is that because u make two identical dish clothes then join them together with the scrubby yarn? Why couldn’t u use the scrubby yarn for the second dish cloth then connect them with the same yarn. Either that or combine the scrubby yarn with the cotton yarn then join with the scrubby yarn. It’s just an idea I had so please let me know if u think this will work.
The two different yarns were just for the two different colours, then the scrubby yarn as a border.
The cloths themselves aren’t actually double thick, but you could do that!
