Easter Egg Washcloth Pattern

Hi Knitters,
The Easter Egg Washcloth pattern is here! This is truly the most simple washcloth pattern I have done to date. Here are the skills needed:
cast on 
bind off
The egg is a simple garter stitch shape with no tricky parts.
The dots are optional but they make for extra scrubbiness, which is always good. I am going to make a couple more eggs with stripes in the middle, I haven't gotten to it yet. I will share as soon as I do. If one of you wants to do stripes, just change the colors for each decrease sequence (you will see this when you get the pattern), with the top and bottom of the egg in the same color. I always weave the ends in to the crochet edging to make it easy and invisible. If one of you fantastic knitters does the stripes, please send me a picture so I can post it and share.

The other idea I have is to whipstitch two of the Mini-Easter Eggs together, leaving the bottom open, to make a bath mitt for a child. It is the perfect size for this. Someone please do this and send me a picture to post! I would love it.

Here is some information about the pattern for you:
Level: Easy, Easy
Large: 8.5 by 7.5 inches
Mini: 6.5 by 5.5 inches
Yarn: Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, 2 skeins in contrasting colors will make 2 large washcloths (any worsted weight cotton will work fine)
Needles: US size 6
Gauge: 4 stitches per inch
Crochet hook (for edging only): size H
